LAFAYETTE - State Police arrested a Lafayette man after they said he arranged online to meet with what he thought was a 15-year-old for sex.

When 29-year-old John James Lee arrived at the meeting location, troopers said he found detectives waiting instead.

Troopers said Lee set up the meeting with an undercover investigator working on a number of social networking sites. They said Lee asked for sexual photos of the teen, and detectives posing as a child arranged to meet Lee in Lafayette Parish on Jan. 2.

Troopers said they arrested Lee when he showed up on charges of computer aided solicitation of a minor.

State Police said they were assisted by the FBI in the investigation, which was part of "Operation Child Watch," an operation targeting child predators.
