DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A former Dickinson elementary school custodian is out on his own recognizance after being charged with luring minors under the age of 15.

The Dickinson Press reports that 38-year-old Tyler E. Wilson is charged with luring minors by computer or other electronic means. Authorities say Wilson used his cell phone in December to send a sex-related text message to a minor.

Stark County State's Attorney Tom Henning says he could not disclose the minor's gender or age. Wilson appeared for a bond hearing last week and was released on his own personal recognizance.

School officials say he is no longer employed at the school district.

Authorities say Wilson's two young daughters have been placed with a family member.
