A Texas Border Patrol agent who was arrested on accusations of molesting a 14-year-old family member first drew suspicions after sending the girl texts, KRIS TV reports.

According to an affidavit obtained by the news station, the girl’s mother first became suspicious because of “boyfriend-like” texts from 49-year-old Jose Jalomos to the teen. Authorities allege the crimes took place in Duvall County, Tex.

His wife also accused him of having an affair and seeing the text messages exchanged between her husband and the victim, according to the affidavit.

When the girl’s mother asked her daughter about the texts, she said she had been “touched on her private parts,” KRIS TV reported.

Jalomos, who is free of jail on a $50,000 bond, is on paid leave pending the case’s outcome.
