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.

If you would like information about child predators, call State Police at (337) 262-5880.
