ST. MARYS - Six men have been arrested in the last 12 months - including one from St. Henry - after allegedly seeking sex with a teen they met online, who turned out to be an undercover police officer.
The men, who range in age from 31 to 50, were apprehended as part of an ongoing sting operation by the St. Marys Police Department. A police officer pretends to be an online teen and lures sexual predators to a location where they think they are going to have sex with this teen. [More]
