The Lubbock Independent School District Police Department has filed a search warrant for a former coach/teacher's Instagram account. 

Jordan Nokes was 25-years-old when he was arrested back on January 21, charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a student. He is out on a $100,000 bond.

The warrant, filed on July 19, states that a copy of text messages from the 17-year-old student was turned into the school on January 14 that described a sexual relationship with Nokes. The student was caught by her parents, and then used Instagram to contact Nokes.

Nokes' phone was taken that same day as evidence. 

In the warrant, it describes how the Lubbock Police Department found several photos of the student in her underwear, and photos of her and Nokes partially clothed and embracing. They also found sexually explicit texts between the two. 

In February, Nokes' friend told police that Nokes said he and the student were in love.

The friend also said on February 6, Nokes told some of his friends not to look inside a Victoria Secret bag in his truck that they assume was for this student.

Then, that friend said Nokes played a recording on his phone of a female talking to someone about her relationship with Nokes, including sexually graphic comments.

Since Instagram users can exchange private messages that are stored, the search warrant is for evidence on computer systems in the control of Instagram to gather evidence from Nokes' account.

Even if an account is deleted, Instagram retains certain information from the account for at least one year, according to the warrant.

To abide by the warrant, Instagram headquarters would have to turn in all private messages (sent or received), all data and information associated with the profile page (such as photos, videos, and the "About Me" section),  all of the users followers, when the account was created and additional information. 

The warrant states that information will serve as evidence of violations listed in Nokes' warrant through his conversations with friends and family or any communication about his criminal actions or this particular case. 

This investigation is ongoing.
