Men Arrested In Guthrie In Craigslist Child Sex Sting
GUTHRIE, Oklahoma - Three men were arrested in Guthrie after authorities say they made lewd and sexual proposals to an undercover task-force officer posing as a 15-year-old boy on Craigslist.
Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and Guthrie police arrested three men, 46-year-old Wallace Walters, 26-year-old Bobby Anderson, and 40-year-old Johnnie Jones, on a complaint of lewd or indecent proposals or acts with a child and violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
According to the OSBI, both Walters and Anderson made lewd and sexual proposals to what they believed was a 15-year-old boy on Craigslist, and they agreed to meet the boy at a local restaurant on Friday.
Both Walters and Anderson arrived at the restaurant, but left the area after they could not find the boy. Guthrie police officers stopped Walters at the intersection of Iron Mound and Cimarron in Guthrie. Anderson was stopped at 2324 E. Noble.
Both Walters and Anderson were taken into custody and booked into the Logan County Jail.
Monday morning, authorities arrested Johnnie Jones of Coyle, Oklahoma, at the intersection of Iron Mound and Cimarron in Guthrie. Using Craigslist, agents say Jones solicited to meet an undercover task-force officer posing as a 15-year-old boy at a local restaurant in anticipation of having sex with the boy.
Jones is still being booked into the Logan County Jail. His mug shot is not available at this time.
