SP)-- A Waukomis man was charged on Wednesday with one count of transmitting information by computer for purposes of instigating sexual conduct with a minor and one count of blackmail. The Garfield County Sheriff’s office said 20 year-old Dillon Wayne Lee was arrested in Enid on Tuesday evening and booked into Garfield County Detention Facility on the complaints. His bond was set at $500,000. Interviews were conducted with several victims who said they were at times solicited for private sexual images, which included blackmail. GCSO, with assistance from Waukomis Police Department, executed more search warrants at a residence in an attempt to gather additional evidence regarding the investigation. The joint investigation is ongoing, with additional charges forthcoming. GCSO and WPD are seeking the public’s help in identifying additional victims who might have been exploited by an Instagram account with the username @munchowat and/or @Kp_20031234. If anyone has information regarding the case, contact GCSO or WPD at (580) 237-0244.
