ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — A 46-year-old man was arrested by Arapahoe County Sheriff’s detectives for trying to engage in sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl.

Anthony Christopher Garcia, 46, was charged with using the Internet to lure a child and Internet sexual exploitation of a child, both felonies. He was booked into the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility and held on a $50,000 bond.

Investigators used an undercover 14-year-old female profile. They say Garcia “described explicit sexual conduct and detailed how he wanted to engage in sexual intercourse with the 14-year-old.”

The suspect arranged to meet the female at her home for sex on March 11 but was arrested by investigators. Officials say Garcia agreed to speak with investigators and admitted to communicating with the 14-year-old for sex.
