HOLMES COUNTY, Fla. (WTVY) - An Opp man has been arrested after authorities say he sent sexual pictures to an investigator he believed to be a 15-year-old child.

Holmes County Sheriff’s Office says the investigation began in mid-September when Jason Travis Lane, 45, Opp made contact with the covert Facebook account. The account was run by an investigator with HCSO.

“Investigators obtained a confession from Lane, which then led to his arrest,” the sheriff’s office said.

Lane is charged with transmitting material harmful to minors and obscene communication - using a computer to seduce solicit or lure a child or person believed to be a child.
