State police in Greensburg have started an investigation into an alleged “sexting” incident involving five Hempfield Area High School students.

“We're in the very initial stages right now. What occurred is that a parent of one of the teenagers apparently found something on their child's cellular phone, reported it to school administrators, and they contacted us,” said state police spokesman Steve Limani.

Police said the incident involves a 16-year-old female, a 16-year-old male, and three 15-year-old males.

Police believe the incident occurred in July or August, but it was reported to police only “in the last couple of weeks.”

“These cases are very difficult to pursue, depending on the type of cellular telephone the individuals have. But, again, we're in the very early stages,” Limani said.
