But police say investigation by the officers uncovered that Brandstrom had kept the girl in his apartment for more than an hour without called authorities. Police say a search of his cellphone revealed several nude photos of the girl.

Brandstrom has been charged with third-degree kidnapping and lascivious acts with a child. He is being held in the Pottawattamie County Jail on $30,000 bond. The name of his attorney did not appear in online court documents Thursday.
