Hodges man charged with sending inappropriate text messages

WARE SHOALS – A Hodges man has been arrested after he allegedly sent inappropriate text messages to a 14-year-old girl.

According to a report from the Ware Shoals Police Department, police spoke with the complainant on Tuesday. The complainant told police that the father of her children, identified as Bruce Allen Johnson, 29, of 2601 Sam Hodges Rd. in Hodges, was sending inappropriate text messages to a 14-year-old girl. Police observed several text messages on the girl’s phone that asked her for oral sex and offered her drugs.

According to the report, the complainant went to a restaurant in Ware Shoals where Johnson was located and checked his phone, but the messages had been deleted.

Johnson has been charged with criminal solicitation of a minor in connection with the incident. His bond has been set at $5,000 cash or surety. He is currently being held at the Greenwood County Detention Center.
