A Cape Coral man has been arrested after allegedly sending a juvenile explicit messages as well as an inappropriate video and photos.

According to the Cape Coral Police Department, a man approached a juvenile at the victim’s place of work in early July.

The suspect, 39-year-old Miles Andrew Jefferies, reportedly gave the victim a box with a gift and his phone number.

Later, a person posing as the victim texted Jefferies several times, telling him the victim was underage. Still, Jefferies continued speaking of explicit acts and sending inappropriate photos and a video.

Jefferies was arrested and taken to the Lee County Jail.

He’s being charged with transmission of material harmful to minors and the use of a computer to lure a minor.
