AMMON, Idaho — An Ammon man has been arrested after an investigation by the Idaho Internet Crimes against Children (ICAC) Unit. The Bonneville County Sheriff's Office arrested Tyler M. Meng, 26, on an outstanding ICAC warrant on April 15.

Meng is charged with lewd conduct with a minor child under 16 years of age and he was booked into the Bonneville County Jail. The Idaho Falls Police Department and the Bonneville County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, as well as the Bonneville County Sheriff's Office, assisted the ICAC unit.
