Authorities say a Moore man is in custody after attempting to meet an underage girl for sex.

Canadian County Sheriff Chris West says that 44-year-old Brian McDonald was arrested July 10 at his workplace in Moore.

West says that on July 5 an undercover investigator posing as a 14-year-old female on a social media app was contacted by McDonald. A conversation between the two carried on over the course of several days.

McDonald, believing he was speaking to a young girl, reportedly asked the agent several questions that were sexual in nature before sending her a photo of a naked man sitting on a toilet and touching his genitals.

The man then reportedly began planning to meet up with the girl at a Holiday Inn in Moore. Authorities were able to find where McDonald worked and arrested him there.

β€œIt’s always time to find and arrest these predators once they start making and locking in hard plans to meet a child for sex,” West said.

McDonald was booked into the Canadian County Jail on a complaint of soliciting sex with a minor by use of technology.
