Local

A Green Island man has been arrested after authorities say he tried to meet up with a 15-year-old girl he met online for sex.

The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office says 46-year-old Arthur Gurbey chatted with the 15-year-old girl online for more than two weeks and invited her to take part in a “sexual relationship.” Gurbey was arrested when he allegedly showed up to meet the girl.

Officials say Gurbey was in possession of child porn, both picture and videos, at the time of the arrest.

The FBI assisted the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office in the investigation.
