BEND, OR -- A Bend transient is accused of communicating with two underage girls online for illicit purposes. In December, Prineville Police turned over information to Bend Police, regarding alleged attemps by 42-year-old Benjamin Finnestad to contact minors through various social media platforms.

 

Investigators in Bend examined digital evidence and conducted interviews they say substantiated the accusations that he unlawfully communicated with minor females. Finnestad was arrested Wednesday on two counts of Luring A Minor for Sexual Conduct and Failing to Register As A Sex Offender. 

 

Bend Police say the investigation is ongoing, and officers remind parents to be mindful of how kids use social media.
