A Bryan teen is arrested after being accused of using the internet to try to strike up a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old.

Ryan Towery, 19, is charged with two felony counts of online solicitation of a minor.

College Station police say its Internet Crimes Against Children unit was contacted by Towery in February when he began chatting with an investigator posing as a young girl.

They say as the computer conversations continued, they grew more sexual in nature to the point where he sent explicit photos of himself to the undercover officers.

Bond on Towery is set at $40,000.
