February 14, 2014
Tribune Chronicle | TribToday.com

MENTOR - Police in northeast Ohio are looking for other possible victims of a man accused of trying to get a young girl to send him inappropriate photos on Facebook.

It started when a 12-year-old girl in Mentor contacted police saying another Facebook user had asked for inappropriate pictures. An investigator contacted the user, posing as a 14-year-old girl. During their conversation, the user solicited sex.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald reports the user's profile led them to 30-year-old Troy P. Slapnicker of Mentor. He was arrested earlier this week and his computer equipment seized.

Slapnicker is facing a felony count of importuning. He's being held with a $100,000 bond. Online records had no attorney information.

Police say more charges are possible.
