WHITEFIELD — A Whitefield man was taken into the custody of Nashua Police last week, accused of developing relationships and having sexual conversations with underage girls on the internet.

Harry "Carl" Jones, 61 of View Street in Whitefield, was arrested on May 11, after being questioned by Nashua officers, and charged with certain uses of computer services prohibited, a class B felony (RSA 649-B:4 I(c)).

Sgt. Ed Samson of the Whitefield Police said that his department had been investigating Jones for over a month on an incident separate from Nashua's when he was taken into custody. Whitefield had been in contact with NPD regarding the southern town's investigation, as well however, and had shared information.

According to a press release issued by NPD, they received a report on April 12, from a concerned parent who had found inappropriate sexual conversations on her computer, involving her 13-year old daughter and a man police believe to be Jones. Police allege he used an alias to converse online with the young teen.

Samson said his department is also investigating alleged conversations between Jones and a teen. A search warrant was executed by Whitefield Police on May 2, in relation to both cases. The details of the warrant are under seal, Samson said, and will likely remain that way until charges are brought forward in Coös County.

Whitefield Police expect to bring felony charges through the indictment process.

Jones was held on $10,000 cash pending arraignment in Nashua District Court.

A class B felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison.
