A Boise man was arrested for sexual exploitation of underage girls on Thursday and charged with 15 felonies.

Alex Wenger, 26, was taken into custody on a felony warrant after the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force began the investigation last July.

Boise Police found evidence that the suspect enticed many underage girls into sending sexually explicit photos of themselves to the suspect and then the suspect met some of them for sexual contact.

He was booked into Ada County Jail on nine charges of sexual exploitation of a child, two counts of child enticement, and four counts of sexual battery of a minor that's 16 or 17 years of age.
