In February this year, detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crime Squad’s Child Exploitation Internet Unit (CEIU) began engaging online with the 49-year-old man.

Police allege the man engaged in sexually explicit conversations with someone he thought was a 14 year old girl, but was actually a Strike Force member.

It will be further alleged that the man made arrangements to meet the child for sexual activity.

Following extensive investigations, the man was arrested in mid April.

He was charged with use carriage service to procure under 16 years for sexual activity, two counts of use carriage service to send indecent material to person under 16 years and resist officer in execution of duty.

He was refused bail, and will appear in court today.

The Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad is comprised of detectives who are specially trained to investigate matters against children and adults, including sexual assault, serious physical abuse, and extreme cases of neglect.

Anyone with concerns about suspected child abuse or exploitation should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: crimestoppers.com.au
