DUVAL COUNTY (Kiii News) -

The Duval County Sheriff's Office picked up a 35-year old man Tuesday for soliciting a 15-year old girl online.

Jesus Adrian Garza of San Patricio County was charged with online solicitation of a minor. Investigators said Garza was 34 at the time he was soliciting the girl, and that the solicitation happened on Facebook. He was going by the name of Jesse Garza at the time.

Authorities said the minor never responded to Garza's messages, and that she told a parent, who then told the Sheriff's Office.

"First he made remarks as far as sexual remarks, what he would like to do sexually, things of that nature," Lt. Ricardo Carrillo said. "And then about I believe another remark was made if they were to meet, what kind of sexual things he would perform."

Investigators said there may be more victims out there, and they encourage any other victims to come forward and contact the authorities.
