LEBANON, Ind. (WLFI) - Police arrested 39 year old Brian Boyer on January 15 for solicitation of a minor. Boyer is a band teacher at Lebanon High School and West Lafayette native.

Police responded to an attempted solicitation just after 10 a.m. on January 15 at Lebanon High School. Two individuals say Boyer had inappropriate conversations with them posing as an underage female over a mobile app.

The Lebanon Community School Corporation released the following statement:

"Lebanon Community School Corporation is aware of charges filed today against Brian Joseph Boyer. Boyer was placed on administrative leave immediately upon learning of allegations of misconduct. He has been employed as a band teacher at Lebanon High School since July 2019.

The events that precede these charges did not involve any students at Lebanon Community School Corporation, and at this time, administrators have not received any report of misconduct involving our students. We will continue to investigate and fully cooperate with local law enforcement.

Student safety is our utmost priority. District policies concerning employee conduct are strictly enforced, and employees receive regular training in best practices in student and school safety. Support is available for students through our school counselors and mental health partners."

We will continue to update the story as we learn more.
