A 24-year-old Northport man is facing charges of soliciting and engaging in sexual activity with minors in the wake of a monthslong investigation by the West Alabama Human Trafficking Task Force.

The investigation, which began in February, determined that Bradley Edward Miller solicited minors through social media apps, offering them money in exchange for nude images as well as requests to meet those minors in person for sex.

Miller has ties to Northport as well as Rock Hill, South Carolina. The WAHTTF worked with the Rock Hill Police Department to apprehend Miller in April, and search warrants identified underage victims of sexual assault in Tuscaloosa area.

The Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit’s Sexual Assault Section obtained warrants for Miller on charges including traveling to meet a child for an unlawful sex act, electronic solicitation of a child, second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy. His charges carry a $150,000 cash bond.

Miller is currently being held in the Bibb County Jail on similar charges. After he posts bond from there, the Tuscaloosa warrants will be served, authorities said.

Additional search warrants have been obtained by WAHTTF and the investigation is ongoing. Additional charges in Tuscaloosa County and South Carolina are anticipated.

Miller is known to have used at least one other name with his potential victims. If you or your child have been contacted by Bradley Edward Miller, please contact the West Alabama Human Trafficking Task Force at 205-248-4750.
