Joshua Taylor Moore

The Lebanon Police Department arrested a Eugene man on sex crimes charges on Friday.

Joshua Taylor Moore, 23, was arraigned on charges of first-degree sex abuse, attempted first-degree sex abuse and third-degree sex abuse on Monday afternoon in Linn County Circuit Court.

He remained lodged in the Linn County Jail on Monday night. Oregon's online court database didn't immediately list his bail amount after his court hearing.

The investigation into the case started after the department received a report that Moore was having inappropriate contact with an underage female and male in Lebanon. Both minors are under the age of 16, according to a news release.
