Undercover Facebook page leads to arrest of metro man
CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. – Officials arrested an Oklahoma City man after allegedly soliciting sex online from an undercover deputy posing to be a 14-year-old girl.
The Canadian County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy had an undercover Facebook page set up as a 14-year-old female.
After locating the undercover profile authorities say, Lucas Fenn, 33, began developing a dialogue with the teen that turned sexual in nature.
He allegedly stated he would like to be the first person to have sex with the girl.
Canadian County Sheriff Randall Edwards said, “I’ll never understand how an adult could derive pleasure from having intercourse with a child. This girl was only supposed to be fourteen year old.”
Authorities say when they questioned Fenn, he admitted he knowingly pursued sexual relations with an under-aged person on Facebook, and then he was placed into custody.
Fenn was booked into the Canadian County Jail on charges of soliciting sexual conduct of a minor by use of technology, and violation of the computer crimes act.
His bond is set at $55,000.
