DA: Berks man traveled to Virginia...

READING, Pa. - A Berks County man who admitted to traveling to Virginia for sex with a 14-year-old girl is now being forced to return there to face criminal charges, according to law enforcement authorities.

Devon Feltenberger was apprehended Wednesday by detectives with the Berks County district attorney's office.

An investigation by the DA's detectives and police in Hopewell, Virginia, revealed that Feltenberger sent the girl sexually explicit photos through Facebook's instant messenger program and had numerous nude photos of her on his phone, officials said.

Detectives said Feltenberger, 23, of Muhlenberg Township, then admitted during their interview with him that he traveled to Virginia at least twice to have sex with the girl.

Feltenberger is facing charges of online enticement of a minor and child pornography-related offenses. A warrant has been issued for his extradition from Berks County to Virginia.

Authorities said their investigation of Feltenberger was prompted by reports from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
