A cop from the Treasure Coast is accused of sexual misconduct with a 15-year old boy.
Sewall's Point Police Officer Juan Garcia was arrested on Tuesday by Martin County Sheriff's deputies and placed on administrative leave without pay pending the investigation.
The father of the alleged victim says he found concerning text messages from Garcia to his son.
He says the officer was a longtime family friend, with his son meeting Garcia eight years ago through a youth program.
The man believes the officer was soliciting the boy for sex.
