HOLMES COUNTY – An undercover operation conducted by the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office culminated Tuesday, November 3, with the arrest of a Niceville man for the solicitation of a minor.

31-year-old Samuel C. Lepone was arrested in Walton County on a warrant obtained by HCSO investigators after he transmitted sexually explicit messages, videos, and other imagery via social media to an individual he believed to be a 15-year-old girl.

Lepone, who is currently in the Walton County Jail, is charged with using a computer to solicit a minor.

Sheriff John Tate would like to thank the Walton County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service for their assistance.
