EL RENO, Okla. – A Yukon man was arrested after he allegedly tried to meet up with an undercover deputy, posing as a 14-year-old girl.

Deputies say 34-year-old Eric Loftis posted an ad, saying he would pay for oral sex.

An undercover sheriff’s deputy responded to the ad, posing as a 14-year-old girl.

Authorities say Loftis sent the deputy several text messages detailing the various sexual acts he wanted to perform with the girl.

“We considered Loftis to be extremely dangerous because he so aggressively pursued what he believed to be a 14-year-old girl for sex. I considered it a high priority to make his arrest if he made any attempt to carry it out,” said Sheriff Randall Edwards, with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies spotted Loftis driving around the meeting point and pulled him over wen he came back to the area.

Investigators say Loftis gave a full confession that he intended to have sex with a minor.

“Loftis gave my investigators a full confession of his intentions to rape this young girl, and even admitted that he had drove around to make sure the cops weren’t hiding out to arrest him when he met up with her,” Edwards said.

Loftis was arrested on soliciting sex with a minor through use of technology.
