GREENFIELD,Ind. (WISH) – A Greenfield man was arrested on a preliminary charge of child solicitation.

According to the Indiana State Police, 22-year-old Nicholas Trautmann was taken into custody by investigators from several agencies including the Hancock Sheriff’s Department, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Indiana State Police.

Police go on to say that the suspect was communicating with a juvenile in Oregon over text messages and social media sites.

Over the course of their communication, police say Troutmann asked the juvenile for pornographic photos.

This led police to serve a warrant of Trautmann’s residence. During the search, Trautmann’s computer and cellphone were taken by authorities to investigate further.

The suspect was transported to the Hancock County Jail where he is being held without bond.

Police say an initial hearing has yet to be scheduled.
