Coombe’s phone was seized through a Douglas County search warrant in January while he was being investigated for his connection to a series of burglaries. Warrants were also served for data from his Google and Snapchat accounts.

Detective Matt Izzard with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office found numerous photos, videos and messages that appeared to be between Coombe and underage females on the cellphone, according to the criminal complaint. Several were images of what appeared to be minor girls in varying states of nudity. One girl who had sent several nude photos and videos of herself to Coombe was identified as a 13-year-old who lived in Ohio.

The Ohio victim had ongoing snapchat communication with Coombe and sent the nudes Dec. 31, according to the complaint. After the Ohio girl asked him to delete them, Coombe sent a nude photo and video of her to a 13-year-old in Douglas County.

The most serious of the charges, sexual exploitation of a child, carries a maximum penalty of 40 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000.

Cash bail of $10,000 was set for Coombe, who remained in custody at the Douglas County Jail. He was ordered to have no intentional contact with minors except his siblings.

Two additional cases remain pending in Douglas County Circuit Court for Coombe.

He faces 12 counts of being a repeater party to property crimes — a mix of felony and misdemeanor counts, including burglary, theft and criminal damage to property — stemming from a rash of burglaries in December and January.

Coombe also faces one felony count of sexual assault of a child under 16 years of age. That charge was triggered by text messages Izzard found on Coombe’s phone between him and a 14-year-old that suggested sexual activity between the two. The reported victim told a child first forensic interviewer that she had sex with Coombe twice.

A $25,000 cash bail was set for Coombe related to the burglary charges and a $5,000 cash bail was set for the sexual assault charge.

Coombe is serving a nine-month jail term for probation revocation, according to court records. His next court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 11.
