GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- A New Jersey man is arrested for sending nude pictures to a 12-year-old girl in Mesa County.

Mesa County Sheriff's Office investigators worked with law enforcement in New Jersey to arrest 19-year-old Omar Macias.

According to an arrest affidavit, the victim's friend had met Macias online and got him to start texting the victim.

New Jersey investigators say Macias admitted to sending nude pictures to a girl he knew was underage.

After an investigation that started in October 2012, Macias was arrested and sent to the Mesa County Jail, where he's being held on a $50,000 bond for internet sexual exploitation of a child and obscenity.
