VIDALIA, La. — Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Cyber Crime Unit aided in the investigation of a man from Colfax, Louisiana, who allegedly contacted a 15-year-old online and asked for a secret dating relationship because he had just started a teaching job in Grant Parish.

Authorities said Bradly J. Dyer, 26, a resident of Colfax, sent sexually explicit photos of himself during conversations with a teen and discussed dating the teen and keeping it a secret.

Authorities also said Dyer told the teen he had recently begun a new job as a high school teacher. After CPSO detectives were able to identify Dyer, contact was made with the Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office who served a warrant for his arrest on Sunday night.
