A 32-year-old Federal Way resident is facing charges for communicating with minors in a sexual manner.
Micah Kevin Kennedy was investigated by the Bend Police Department after one of the victim’s parents saw that son had been communicating with Kennedy on his cell phone. The police took over the phone and coordinated a meeting with Kennedy. Kennedy believed he was meeting the juvenile male and was arrested, according to a summary released by Cathy Schrock, Federal Way police spokeswoman.
Bend police prepared a search warrant for the apartment in Federal Way Nov. 6 in the 28400 block of Pacific Highway S. Federal Way police assisted with the warrant service.
At this time there are no charges in Washington. Police believe Kennedy brought juvenile males from Oregon to Federal Way, but there is no evidence at this point to show a crime occurred in Federal Way.
The case is also being looked at for Federal Prosecution, according to a summary released by Schrock.
