CLAREMORE, OK -- A Tulsa man is in the Rogers County Jail after sheriff's deputies discovered him with a 14-year old girl in a wooded area near Claremore Lake.  

In a release from the sheriff's office, a deputy patrolling the lake area observed a parked vehicle.  As the deputy was checking the vehicle, he was approached by witnesses who told the deputy about teens seen smoking a pipe in some nearby woods. 

The deputy entered the wooded area and spotted a man who appeared to be carrying a young girl on his shoulders. 

The Rogers County Sheriff's Office say the deputy contacted the man and found he had an outstanding traffic warrant. 

The man, 25-year-old Loren Younge, Tulsa, was arrested and taken to the Rogers County jail. 

The girl, who was 14, was taken to her parents, where deputies learned she had been dating Younge. 

Back at the jail, Younge admitted to deputies he had kissed the girl and sent her photos of his nude genitals.  A search of Younge's phone turned up several photographs of the girl in various stages of undress. 

Younge also told deputies he was aware of the girl's age. 

Younge was arrested on a complaint of lewd molestation of a minor child.
