On Monday, June 8, 2020, Investigators with the Collin County Sheriff's Office Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) arrested 22 year old Daniel Alexander Beard-Rios and charged him with Online Solicitation of a Minor Under the Age of 14.
Earlier this week, Beard-Rios began communicating with one of our undercover CEU Investigators, who was posing as a 14 year old female, in an online chat forum. Beard-Rios made arrangements to travel to McKinney with the intention of meeting, and engaging in sexual activity, with what he thought was a 14 year old girl. Upon arriving, Beard-Rios was met by CEU deputies and arrested.
Beard-Rios is currently being held in the Collin County Detention Facility on a $25,000.00 bond.
