TWIN FALLS — A local man is accused of possessing nude photos of a 16-year-old girl.

Daniel Tyler Ward, 22, of Twin Falls was arraigned Wednesday on one count of sexual exploitation of a child.

Ward, who was on probation out of Montana, was arrested after a probation officer found photos and text messages from a teenage girl on his phone in July, according to an affidavit.

A search of Ward’s phone and computer turned up three nude photos of the 16-year-old, as well as text messages in which she told Ward she was 16, police said.

Ward was jailed on a $100,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12.
