A search warrant was served on a South Bank Road residence after authorities suspected a man in the house was sending sexually explicit text messages to a minor.

Tony Maestas, 33, was arrested on suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts and possession of sexually explicit matter.

Maestas admitted to sending and receiving explicit photos to a teen girl, said sheriff's Sgt. Steve Morris.

It doesn't appear that there was any inappropriate physical contact between the two, authorities said.
