Cove man sends pornographic picture over his phone

A 20-year old Cove man is facing serious charges after he allegedly took an inappropriate picture of himself and sent it to an underage Logan girl. Logan Police Lieutenant Rod Peterson says Shelton J. Anderson was at his home in Cove when he sent the picture, but since it was received in Logan, Logan Police handled the case. Peterson says police were made aware of the picture and opened an investigation. He says what’s important when taking and sending questionable pictures via cell phone is to make sure the recipient is not a minor, and also that the picture would be welcome and not cause offense. Anderson is charged with two felony counts of dealing harmful material to a minor and distribution of pornographic materials.
