MySpace Sting Yields Arrest Of Teen


Full story and both MySpace profiles:

Police say a Fruitport teenager has been arrested after allegedly sending pornographic pictures of children to a New Hampshire detective who had been posing as a 14-year-old boy on the Internet.

Adam Michael Cruz, 17, of 3285 Micka, was ar-raigned late last week before 60th District Judge Andrew Wierengo III on felony charges. He is free on a $2,000 personal recognizance bond. Police said he is a Fruitport High School student.

Cruz is charged as an adult with one count of using a computer to commit a crime and two counts of possessing child sexually abusive material. The first offense carries a possible penalty of four to 10 years in prison and the possession charge is a four-year felony.

Schultz said the New Hampshire detective had set up a profile MySpace.com, a popular Web site among young people. The officer was posing as a 14-year-old gay male. Cruz ultimately contacted the undercover officer and was added to his friends list.
