A man is behind bars in Lackawanna County, accused of indecent assault and giving alcohol to young girls.

Police say Uber Mora, 38, from Carbondale, contacted underage girls on the internet and through text messages.

According to police, Mora gave them alcohol and clothes to gain their trust and keep them quiet.

Authorities believe more underage victims are out there.

“We feel there are a lot more victims that could be out there because of the amount of text messages, amount of Facebook chatter being recorded,” said Sgt. Joseph Laguzzi of the Carbondale police department. “We’re looking for anyone out there to contact our agency.”

Mora was arrested Tuesday and faces indecent assault and other charges in Lackawanna County.
