VIDALIA, La. (KNOE) - Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office and Rankin County Sheriff’s Office have arrested a man in Brandon, Miss. accused of online solicitation by pretending to be a minor.

CPSO was able to identify Taylor through phone records and found he was living in Brandon, Ms.
Cyber crime detectives got in touch with the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office to confirm the information on Taylor.
RCSO obtained a warrant and arrested Taylor on Jan. 15 on charges of computer-aided solicitation of a minor and indecent behavior with juveniles.
