CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. – Authorities in Oklahoma have arrested another alleged child predator.
Canadian County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 24-year-old Thomas Morgan earlier this week after he allegedly sent pictures of an erect penis to a Canadian County Sheriff’s Deputy who was pretending to be a 14-year-old Yukon girl.
Authorities say they made contact with Morgan two weeks ago after he friend requested the “14-year-old girl” on Facebook.
Deputies say Morgan sent the under-cover deputy private messages asking about the girl’s sexual history, and telling her different types of sexual acts he would like to perform with her.
According to the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, Morgan asked the girl to send him nude pictures and sent the girl “x-rated photographs of himself.”
“We moved as soon as he began making attempts to meet the under-aged child hoping to take him off the streets before he targeted a real live victim,” said Randall Edwards, Canadian County Sheriff.
Deputies located Morgan at his home and say they obtained a full confession.
He also allegedly told investigators that he was actively involved in a sexual relationship with a real 16-year-old girl and possessed nude photographs of her as well.
He was booked into the Canadian County Jail for Committing Lewd Acts With a Child, and Soliciting Sex With a Minor Through the Use of the Internet.
