This male had been communicating with what he thought to be a 14 year old female but it turned out to be a member f our team, we tracked him down to his most recent location where we caught him leaving his vehicle and confronted him.

He asked our decoy for sex and sexual activities and also sent indecent images.

While he was being taken through the court system it came to light he was also up for a historical rape case so was instantly remanded in custody.

We would also like to say a massive well done to the female for her bravery standing up in court and giving her evidence against this monster.
