MySpace Sting Ends With Arrest

"Boy" was really undercover officer:

A U.S. Navy sailor from Florida has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Marcos O. Aponte, 30, then residing in Norfolk, Va., was arrested after he sent someone whom he believed to be a 14-year-old boy child pornography. He allegedly also performed a sex act via his webcam.

Like so many of these cases, Aponte wasn't really chatting with a minor, but instead a police officer posing as one.

Investigators say that Aponte made contact with the undercover detective via MySpace, under the name "Surflover."

They also say they seized two computers and a cd with "don't touch" written on it.
