FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) -

A Fort Wayne man is set to be extradited to Colorado after police say he used social media to exploit a child in Colorado.

The Indiana State Police said Corey Hall, 33 of Fort Wayne was arrested at his place of employment on a nationwide extradition arrest warrant Tuesday evening. The arrest comes after an investigation by the Parker Police Department in Parker, Colorado.

The department was investigating an incident where they say a man was allegedly communicating with a minor female using Kik, Skype and Snapchat. The communications went as far back as January 2016 and police say hundreds of explicit photos and almost two dozen videos were sent between the man and the victim.

The investigation resulted in Hall's arrest. He was taken to and incarcerated in the Allen County Jail and is being held without bond while he awaits extradition to Colorado to face child exploitation charges.

The Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children credits the inter-agency cooperation with the success of this highly technical criminal case. The task force is reminding people that internet crimes have almost no boundaries in terms of how far a perpetrator’s reach can be to find potential victims. If anyone suspects or has any information about internet crimes involving children, they are asked to contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at either www.cybertipline.com or (800) 843-5678.
