OSBI agents arrest a Midwest City man Thursday morning based on a warrant from Idaho related to internet crimes against a child.
The Soda Springs, Idaho, police contacted Oklahoma law enforcement about a man who had exchanged lewd photographs with a 16-year-old girl there.
OSBI agents tracked down that man at 1617 N. Post Road in Midwest City where he was living with friends. Just before 10 a.m. Thursday, OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children Unit agents arrested Daniel Ray Garner (d.o.b. 10/7/1992) on the Idaho warrant which included sexual exploitation of a minor child and dissemination of harmful material to a minor.
The investigation stemmed from a woman reporting to Idaho police of an app on her tablet that her daughter had used. The woman searched the app and found a picture of male genitalia.
Chat information revealed the girl had sent Garner nude pictures of herself.
OSBI added a complaint of violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
Numerous computer-related devices were found at his home. A forensic examination of those devices will determine if Garner will face further counts.
Numerous police departments assisted in this investigation including the Stillwater Police Department, Edmond Police Department, and Midwest City Police Department.
Garner is unemployed.
