A Springfield Township man is accused by FBI and local police of engaging in explicit Internet messages with an underage girl.

Nicholas B. Bowers, 30, is named in a federal arrest warrant Monday on charges of receiving material involving the sexual exploitation of minors by means of using a computer.

His arrest was announced Wednesday by the FBI office in Cleveland.

According to the FBI, an investigation began in Toronto on Jan. 9, when a parent of a 12-year-old girl contacted Toronto police “regarding sexually explicit chats and email messages his daughter was receiving.”

Later, police assumed the girl’s online identity and continued the exchanges. It was later determined that Bowers was communicating with the girl.

Springfield police and the local FBI executed a search warrant Jan. 14.

During the search, authorities say they found USB drives and CDs “labeled with file names suggesting minor ages and the words ‘child porn pics.’ ”
