WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- He was caught trying to take out a 15-year-old boy from school. Now the 45-year-old man is charged with much more, after cops found sex toys in his car.

The Pender County Sheriff's Office says when they arrested Michael Nobles at Pender High for trying to take the boy off campus they asked him if they could search his car. Nobles said yes.

Inside the car officers found a folder with print-outs of sexually explicit e-mails with the 15-year-old boy's name. But that was not the only thing investigators found. In the back seat they found three bags of sex toys and lubricants.

Investigators say their investigation continues to see if there are any other victims out there.

Detectives did say, though, that Nobles's relationship with the 15-year-old was consensual.

"During the interview he admitted to the fact that there have been incidents between the 15 year-old, and because of that charged for those crimes," Det. John Leatherwood said.

Nobles's most recent job was as a church pianist in the Pender and Wilmington area. Detectives cannot release the name of the specific churches where nobles played, because case is on-going.
