Bend Man Accused Of Trying To Lure Kids On Social Media

BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a 26-year-old Bend man wanted to meet an underage girl for sex, offering to supply her with "magic mushrooms," alcohol and condoms for the encounter. The person Hunter Nash met online earlier this week wasn't a 16-year-old girl, though. It was a BPD officer working undercover to find adults who try to lure minors through social media and online dating sites. 

Investigators say after Nash learned the person he was messaging was 16, he sent explicit photos and pictures of bags of psilocybin mushrooms. He agreed to meet the girl at Ponderosa Skate Park in Bend Tuesday evening. When he arrived, officers took him into custody. They say they found  condoms and a 12-pack of White Claw in his car. More than 28 grams of psilocybin was also recovered from his home. 

Nash is charged with Attempting to Furnish Liquor to a Minor, drug possession, Attempted Delivery of a Schedule I Substance to a Minor, Luring a Minr for Sexual Conduct, Online Sexual Corruption of a Child, Attempted Sex Abuse and Endangering a Minor.
