KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

A Kansas City, KS, Fire Department paramedic has been charged with criminal acts, accused of trying to solicit someone he thought was underage.

Timothy Coffin, 47, has been charged in Wyandotte County Court with electronic solicitation of a child, and sexual exploitation of a child.

The first charge alleges that on May 9, 2012 he tried to entice someone he thought was 14 or 15 to engage in sexual acts with him.

Two other counts allege that on Oct. 3, 2012 investigators found him in possession of sexually explicit images of one or more minors.

The charges do not specify whether the accusations surround activity on his home computer, or one at his fire station.

He surrendered himself at the Johnson County Jail on Monday, and was released after posting his $25,000 bond.

Coffin, a paramedic, is currently on unpaid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the legal proceedings.

KCTV5 went to Coffin's home in La Cygne, KS, but got no answer.

His court date is set for July 23.
