MySpace Sting Nabs Suspected Predator

From 2006:

A Charleroi man was arrested Friday evening and charged with trying to lure a 14-year-old girl into having sex with him.

When Brian Mizwa, 29, was arrested in the Giant Eagle parking lot at The Waterfront shopping complex in West Homestead about 5 p.m., he thought he was going to meet a 14-year-old girl he met on MySpace.com. Instead, he met FBI agents who arranged the sting.

According to a search warrant affidavit, an FBI agent created an undercover user profile on America Online and at the popular MySpace site, purporting to be a 14-year-old girl. As part of the scheme, the agent got photographs of a Swissvale police officer from when she was 12 to 14.
