Police Arrest Suspect In MySpace Sting


Man held in lieu of $20,000 bond:

A 56-year-old California man, who police say contacted at least a dozen different minors on MySpace, has been arrested on suspicion of sending harmful matter electronically to a minor and communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a sexual offense.

The investigation into suspect Miguel Gonzales, of Visalia, originally began when the the parent's of a 16-year-old girl contacted police and voiced their concern about inappropriate messages being sent to their daughter on both her MySpace page and her cell phone.

Concerned, police then took control of both the girl's cell phone and her profile and posed online as her. Eventually enough evidence was gathered to secure a search warrant.

When officers arrived at the home of Miguel Gonzales, they discovered he was still on the internet conversing with an undercover officer posing as the 16-year-old. He was quickly arrested.

Thanks to a tipster for the MySpace profile.
