One suspect charged with online solicitation of minors


LIVINGSTON – A 17-year-old Livingston man was being held in the Polk County Jail Tuesday on bonds totaling $100,000 after being charged with two felony counts of online solicitation of a minor. Colton Alan Lester was arrested Monday by Polk County Sheriff's Office investigators. The sheriff's department received two complaints from concerned parents on Sunday, April 27, concerning online conversation that their under aged children were receiving from an adult male. The conversations reportedly contained attempts to sexually solicit the girls, who ranged in age from 11 to 13 years. Following an investigation, officers were able to obtain enough evidence to take Lester into custody. Based on the information that the sheriff's office received there are other possible victims that have come into contact with the suspect online. Investigators are asking anyone with additional information to contact the Polk County Sheriff's Office at 327-6810
