Policeman Charged In Cyber Sting


Full story and MySpace profile:

Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials arrested Matthew Wayne Edmonds, a patrolman with the Ocala Police Department, at his home on Thursday. Edmonds, 32, has been a police officer for 10 years.

A 14-year-old girl notified authorities after she was contacted online in December by a man claiming to be a University of Florida student in his 20s. The man told the girl he wanted a ``new girl to support.''

The girl replied to the instant message and said she was 14, but the man then sent another message that said it was all right ``as long as she didn't tell anyone.''

The girl searched MySpace.com for the man's screen name after the chat and e-mailed authorities when his online profile displayed a picture of an older man.
