A Connally Independent School District teacher was arrested on a charge of solicitation of a minor, the McLennan County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

Capt. Steve January said Timothy Bruner, 59, thought he was communicating with a minor through social media. The account was actually created by undercover detectives.

A spokesperson for the school district said Bruner was a second grade teacher at the primary school.

Bruner was booked into the McLennan County Jail.
