A South Carolina Parks and Recreation volunteer is in jail after allegedly having sex with a minor.

Lancaster County police arrested 33-year-old Lisa Fry on Monday after a months-long investigation revealed she was having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old neighbor boy, WBTV reports.

The parents of the teen contacted police in January after believing the two were having an inappropriate relationship. Police said the woman and teen had been engaging in sex since last December, according to WCNC.

"Ms. Fry has served as a volunteer basketball coach with Lancaster County Parks and Recreation," the Parks and Recreation department said in an online statement. "The child was not involved in the Parks and Recreation program."

Fry passed a background check prior to being a volunteer, and has now been suspended, the statement added.

The teen told police he had been in contact with Fry through text messages, according to My Fox 8.

Fry has been charged with sexual conduct with a minor and attempting a lewd act with a victim under 16 years old.
