JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. (WTKR) -- Police have arrested a Missouri man who was having "inappropriate" conversations with a teenage Virginia girl.

Thomas Collura, 57, from Joplin, Missouri, was arrested in December after sources say he persuaded a James City County girl under the age of 15 to make more than 140 porn videos.

Records say Collura sent "adult toys" and electronics to her home for the girl to make videos for him.

The crimes allegedly took place between August and October, according to James City County Deputy Police Chief Stephen Rubino. The teen's parents went to police in October after finding "inappropriate sexual-type behavior that was being videoed" on their daughter's cellphone, he said.

The girl and Collura communicated through Instagram and KIK messenger.

Collura was arrested in Missouri and charged with felony soliciting a child to make porn and felony indecent liberties. He was extradited January 3 and is in Virginia Regional Peninsula Jail under no bond.
