Troop Leader Arrested

A Boy Scout troop leader has been busted, accused of sending pornographic pictures to a teenage girl.

That 14-year-old girl turned out to be an undercover cop, online in Ohio.

Under arrest is 53-year-old Daniel Walsh of Tallahassee.

Arrest papers show he was chatting online with a girl named "Tina Green Eyes" and within 16 minutes of the first instant message, deputies say Walsh began sending her sexually graphic pictures.

"We did learn that Mr. Walsh did work with the Boy Scouts of America and was in fact working with one of the local packs," said LCSO Spokesman Chris Chase. "We have no indication that any of those kids were involved, however, it is something that really sends the message home to people that this does happen here in Tallahassee."

Deputies say when they served a search warrant on Walsh's Tallahassee home Wednesday, he was actually online with the fictitious 14-year-old girl at the time.

Arrest papers say Walsh admitted to chatting with one or two other teenage girls recently, but can't remember their names or if he sent them any pictures.
