A man who posted a Craigslist ad seeking sex has been arrested after he thought he was meeting a 14-year-old, police said.

Investigators say Kevin Smith, 38, was in town from Summerhill, Penn.

Smith sent a picture of his genitals to an undercover investigator, telling her that's what "he would be bringing to the party," investigators said.

"According to Smith’s own admissions, this wasn’t his first time to set up sexual encounters using the internet. He told investigators he had been caught doing the same thing by his wife in the past,” said Chris West, Canadian County Undersheriff in a news release.

Smith told investigators he didn't think he had broken the law because the uncover agent lied about being an officer when asked, police said. Smith also fully confessed and told the agent that she would need to leave immediately after sex, leaving police "wondering if Smith had a second person lined up for a sex after he was finished with the fourteen year old Mustang girl."

Smith was booked on a count of Lewd Acts with a Child. Smith is out of jail on a $50,000 bond.
