PERRYSBURG, OH (WTOL) – A Toledo man faced a judge Friday and is now behind bars after being accused of trying to lure young girls to pose nude online. Police have identified several victims and worry there could be more.
Daniel Jones, 34, appeared before a Perrysburg Municipal Court judge by video arraignment Friday morning. He faces felonious charges after police said he solicited several underage girls on Facebook. According to police, Jones offered to pay the girls to perform nude online by web cam.
Perrysburg Police arrested Jones just after noon Thursday in Levis Commons.
Police also searched Jones' car, west Toledo home, and a north Toledo accounting office Jones runs.
Neighbors said they were shocked.
On his Facebook page, Jones posted pictures of his young daughter and the children's soccer team he coached. He wrote, "Just wondering where the woman is that I have been searching for."
Police said they may have uncovered just the tip of the iceberg and fear there may be more victims. They said what Jones is accused of doing is a reminder for parents to closely monitor what kids are doing online. Find out if someone is talking to them and making them feel uncomfortable or asking them to do something that is inappropriate. If so, call the police.
Jones remains in the Wood County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
