Internet Sex Lure Leads To Arrest

A NORTH Queensland man has been arrested after being lured to Brisbane by a police officer posing as a 14-year-old girl on the internet.
The man from Bowen, south of Townsville, had been communicating online for almost a month with an officer from Taskforce Argos, set up to combat pedophilia on the internet, police said.
The 27-year-old man allegedly arranged to meet the girl at Fortitude Valley, in the inner city, with the intent of taking her back to Bowen with him, police said.
When the man arrived at the location last night he was arrested and remanded in custody to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow.
He has been charged with six counts of using the internet to expose a child to indecent material and five counts of using the internet to procure a child to engage in sexual acts.
The taskforce's investigations have also led to the recent arrests of alleged pedophiles in the US state of Florida and Scotland.
