OCONEE COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina)- Deputies in Oconee County say they arrested a registered sex offender from Westminster who is accused of sending “suggestive” and “immoral” messages to a teenager.

According to a release from the sheriff’s office, deputies started investigating in January after a harassment complaint was reported. In addition to sending the messages, the 54-year-old suspect lied about both his age and identity, the sheriff’s office says.

A release from the deputies identified the suspect as Danny Wayne Long, who was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center on Friday.

Long was later released on a $25,000 personal recognizance bond, deputies confirmed.

The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s office says.
