A youth minister who works in both Levelland and Lubbock has been arrested on a charge of enticement of a minor. 25-year-old Trevor Jacob Fortner was detained by federal agents on Wednesday after police say he responded on social media to an undercover agent posing as a 15-year-old girl.

Police say Fortner sent sexually explicit pictures to the "decoy" via cellphone and requested she do the same.

The arrest came as part of a nationwide effort called "Project Safe Childhood" in which federal agents work with local police to run actual stings and make arrests.
