PITTSBURG COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Two Okmulgee men are behind bars after deputies discovered them in a parked car with a 15-year-old boy they reportedly met online for the purpose of having sex.

Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office deputy and reserve deputy said they were patrolling near Longtown about 3 a.m. Sunday when they noticed the suspicious vehicle.

After the vehicle pulled back onto the road, the deputies initiated a traffic stop.

Two men, Dwight Beard, 48, and Justin Pollard, 40, were in the vehicle as well as the teenager, who was in the front seat.

According to the sheriff's office, the boy was acting nervous, so deputies brought him back to the patrol car. He initially told them the men worked with his father, then bolted from the car.

One of the deputies chased down the boy and brought him back to the car, where he reportedly told them he met the two men through a smartphone app for gay men. The boy said he and the men had been exchanging nude photos and met for the purpose of having sex, according to the deputies.

Both Beard and Pollard were arrested, and at last check, they were still in the Pittsburg County Jail.
