EVANSVILLE, Indiana  (WTVA) -- A man from the Golden Triangle faces interstate stalking charges in Indiana. 

Orlando Webber, of Columbus, is accused in a federal indictment of using social media to stalk Evansville High School girls. 

Federal prosecutors say Webber used "Lando" as his moniker to stalk as many as 30 of the Indiana girls from as early as 2014. 

They say he used Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to commit the crimes. 

The victims told federal prosecutors they received sexually explicit communications and images from Webber asking for sexual favors. 

They say every time they would block Webber, he would use a different account to resume stalking them. 

FBI agents arrested Webber at his mother's Columbus home in May. 

Webber's trial date has been set for September 4 in Evansville. 

If convicted, he faces 25 years in prison.
