A local man was arrested after police say he tried to meet up with a 13-year-old girl for sex.

Police say John West, 48, arranged a meeting in the parking lot of a Central Avenue business back on February 1. 

West thought a 13-year-old girl would be there but instead was greeted by police.

Officers do not believe West has any actual victims and the “girl” he was chatting to was law enforcement the entire time.
