A Union, Mich., man was charged with several criminal offenses Friday after police found him with a 15-year-old girl from New York.
Cass County police received a tip from the Federal Bureau of Investigation that they believed the girl might be en route from New York to meet a man in Union.
Investigators found the girl unharmed at about 11 p.m. Thursday night with Dean Young, 45, at a residence on Spencer Drive in Union, according to a news release issued by Cass County Sheriff’s Department.
Young was arraigned in court Friday and faces multiple charges of criminal sexual conduct, possession of child pornography and using a computer for the solicitation of a minor for immoral purposes.
Young had recently moved from Tucson, Ariz., to Union, where he had been living with a friend, police said.
Young was being held at Cass County jail on a $75,000 bond.
The girl, believed to be a runaway, was taken into protective custody until her parents arrived Friday, police said.
