SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla.- Sheriff's detectives have made their 32nd arrest in Operation Intercept, a sting operation intended to lure online predators who seek to have sex with children.
Michael John Moller, 28, of Fort Myers, is charged with using a computer to solicit a parent or guardian and to arrange to travel to commit sex acts on a child.
Lee County authorities arrested him on a warrant and, on Tuesday, he was transferred to the Sarasota County jail, where his bail is set at $50,000.
Detectives claim Moller thought he was communicating over the Internet with a parent who agreed to let him have sex with a 13-year-old.
On May 14, the Sheriff's Office and other local law enforcement agencies announced they had arrested 31 men from across the state who thought they were arranging to have sex with a child in Sarasota. The suspects were actually communicating with detectives, arrest reports stated.
