RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Rapid City police say a man charged in a 15-count criminal complaint paid young girls to pose for lewd photos at a motel room in the city.

The Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/18Xd9CC ) 51-year-old Wallace A. “Wally” Beane, of Rapid City, is in jail on a $500,000 bond.

He is charged with one count of third-degree rape, four counts of sexual contact with a child under the age of 16 and 10 counts of possession, manufacture or distribution of child pornography.

Police reports say at least 15 pornographic images of young girls were found on Beane’s cellphone, although investigators have not yet identified the victims.

An uncle’s concern for his niece prompted police to investigate.

Beane’s lawyer did not immediately return a call Wednesday seeking comment.
