Police charge man trying to meet girl, 14

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 40-year Illinois truck driver was arrested Thursday afternoon when he arrived in the Kenwood area, allegedly for a sexual rendezvous with what he believed was a 14-year-old girl he met in an Internet chat room.

        The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office charged Randy D. Carle, of Griggsville, Ill., with importuning. Mr. Carle was arrested about 4:25 p.m. when he approached an undercover officer from the Cincinnati Police Department.

        An interstate truck driver, Mr. Carle had talked to what he thought was a teen-age girl in a chat room and asked her to meet him for sex, the sheriff's office said. He contacted the girl Wednesday saying he was in Ohio and arranged a meeting for Thursday afternoon.

        The truck driver was unaware he had been chatting with investigators from the sheriff's office's Regional Electronic Computer Investigations section.
