LAYTON, Utah — A teacher from Roy High School was arrested Wednesday in a child exploitation operation headed by the FBI and Layton City Police Department.

30-year-old Brady Allen was arrested on charges of enticing a minor through internet or text and sexual exploitation of a minor, according to charging documents.

In August, detectives went undercover as a 13-year-old child and began to communicate with Allen through a popular chat app. During the conversation, Allen arranged to meet with the child for sex and drove to the meeting location, according to the Layton City Police Department.

Allen was identified at the meeting location, but not contacted or arrested at that time, according to police.

On Wednesday, Allen was arrested at his home and admitted to communicating with the detective posing as a child and showing up to meet the child, police said.

The Roy High School website tags Allen as a "digital media" teacher.

School administration was notified of his arrest.
