WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) -

A Lynnville man is under arrest on two counts of child solicitation.

The Warrick County Sheriff's Office says detectives spent six weeks investigating a report that 23-year-old Tyler Weaver used social media to solicit sexual contact from two juveniles earlier this year.

Warrick County Sheriff Brett Kruse says detectives with the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force did find evidence of those conversations and a case was filed with the Warrick County prosecutor.

Weaver was arrested Thursday morning.

If convicted, he could face up to five years in jail and be required to register as a sex offender.
