A Cobb County man is accused of using Snapchat to solicit teenage girls for sex, according to police.

Micah Manuel Freeman, 28, allegedly used the social media app to offer various girls, ages 13 to 19, money for various sex acts, his arrest warrant states. The investigation began when a 14-year-old girl reported the messages she had received to a children’s advocacy group.

“There were multiple pictures and videos sent from that juvenile female to said accused, and their conversations showed that it was in exchange for money,” the warrant states.

Freeman gave the teenagers his cellphone number, and investigators were able to locate him through his IP address. His cellphone records were then searched, the warrant states.

“Upon going through the Snapchat returns, said affiant found multiple underage girls that, said accused had been talking to and offering money to in exchange for sexual photos, videos and/or sexual acts,” the warrant states.

Freeman was arrested Monday at his Kennesaw home. He was charged with 12 counts of sex trafficking, two counts of computer pornography and sexual exploitation of a child, jail records showed. Freeman was being held without bond late Tuesday.
