GRANTS PASS, Ore.,--Grants Pass Department of Public Safety told NewsWatch 12 that an investigation of Trevor Warren Jones started with a concerned parent.

"We were contacted by a woman here in Grants Pass that had some concerns about some social media interactions on her daughters Instagram account," says Lt. Todd Moran.

The messages her daughter was receiving were from Trevor Jones. Police then began to message Jones through the 11 year old girls account.

"Some items were received through social media that clearly were indicative of someone that wasn't interested in having an innocent relationship with an 11 year old girl," says Lt. Moran.

Police say he sent things like lewd pictures and plans to meet up with the young girl. Grant Pass Department of Public Safety arranged to me up with Jones at the Grants Pass Skate Park. Jones showed up to meet the girl, but was instead met by detectives. 

Lt. Morans message to parents was clear—moniter your child's social media account and have a conversation with them about internet predators.

"Most operating systems have parent control, you can just type in the search bar "parent control" and it will walk you through how to set it up," says Micheal Bourne owner at All Tech Computers.

Bourne explained how you can block certain apps on your child's phone.

If your child has an iPhone, you can go to settings, screen time, content and privacy, turn it on, then click allowed apps and choose what apps your child does and does not have access to.
