Former reserve officer arrested on child sex charges

Cox accused of child sex crime

CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. – Canadian County authorities arrested a former reserve police officer.

Twenty-seven-year-old Daniel Cox was taken into custody after investigators said he contacted an undercover investigator who was posing as a 15-year-old girl on the internet.

Cox requested a nude photograph and sent several sexually explicit test messages detailing what he planned to do to the person he thought was an underage teen girl.

Within a few hours of communicating with the decoy, he requested to meet the “teen” in Yukon.

He was taken into custody and booked into the Canadian County Jail.

Police also found a loaded handgun inside his vehicle.

Cox faces charges of facilitating, encouraging or soliciting sexual conduct with a minor and use of a firearm while committing a felony.
