6th man arrested in child predator sting
An Alberta man is the sixth to be charged with felony sexual abuse of children after investigators say he responded to an online ad offering sex with a 12-year-old girl.
32-year-old Thomas Anderson Quinton made an initial appearance in District Court on Monday.
Charging documents say Quinton responded to a Craigslist ad posted by investigators with the local Internet Crimes Against Children task force looking for a man to teach a 12-year-old girl about sex.
Court records say Quinton discussed explicit topics with someone he thought was a 12-year-old girl, traveled from Canada to meet her and had condoms in his pocket when he was arrested.
Five other men were charged with the same crime on June 28.
