Roy High School teacher arrested on investigation of sexually exploiting minor

ROY — A 30-year-old Roy High School teacher was arrested Wednesday by Layton police on investigation of enticing and sexually exploiting a minor.

Brady Glenn Allen was booked into Davis County Jail on Wednesday night and was ordered to be held without bail, court documents show.

Allen’s arrest didn’t take place at the school, Weber School District officials confirmed Thursday. His alleged actions weren’t related to any activities that took place at the school, and didn’t involve any students, the district said in a news release.

Layton police began investigating Allen in August as part of an undercover operation with the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force.

A detective portraying a 13-year-old child was contacted by Allen online who asked for nude photos and wanted to arrange a meeting with the child for sex, a press release from Layton police stated.

Allen arrived at the meeting location on Wednesday and was identified by police. He was arrested later at his home and admitted he was the man talking to the detective who was posing as a child, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Weber School District has been notified of his arrest, police said.

Allen was arrested on investigation of enticing a minor via the internet, a second-degree felony, and sexual exploitation of a minor, a third-degree felony.

As of Wednesday night, charges had not been filed against Allen.

According to court records, Allen does not have a criminal past in Utah, aside from a handful of traffic violations.

According to the Roy High School website, Allen taught digital media. He has been placed on administrative leave, and the district is conducting an internal investigation into the matter, Weber School District’s news release said.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story referred to charging documents; Allen has not been charged. The document was an affidavit of probable cause.
