RED BAY, Ala. (WHNT) – A former Red Bay Police Department (RBPD) officer has been arrested after deputies said he was caught sending inappropriate messages to “several underage girls”.
According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO), deputies received a report of Bronnie Wayne Grissom, 31, of Vina texting a child under the age of 16.
Deputies say their investigation revealed that Grissom texted several underage girls and tried to lure one girl to meet him for sex. The sheriff’s office said Grissom admitted to sending Snapchat messages to young girls.
The sheriff’s office said deputies knew Grissom because he was employed as a Red Bay police officer. Deputies say Red Bay Police have already been made aware of the allegations and fired Grissom – he had not completed the police academy at the time of his arrest.
Grissom was arrested and charged with electronic solicitation of a child. He was incarcerated in the Franklin County Jail on $25,000 bond.
Deputies say they are continuing to interview potential victims and witnesses and are awaiting forensic results from several electronic devices. So, more charges could be forthcoming.
