PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Providence firefighter has been charged with soliciting a minor for nude photos and sending indecent material to a minor.

State police say they arrested 32-year-old Jason August of South Kingstown on Thursday and seized several pieces of digital media for forensic analysis. He also cited for marijuana possession.

Authorities say the investigation began recently when Boston police informed Rhode Island State Police that someone was using the Internet to solicit a minor for nude photos and to send indecent material to a minor.

A judge set bail at $2,000 for August during his arraignment Thursday in District Court in Providence. It’s not clear what his response to the allegations is. A phone listing for August couldn’t be found Thursday and it’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
