Texarkana Man Arrested for Solicitation of a Minor Online in Sting Operation
Police have arrested a Texarkana man for allegedly arranging to meet who he thought was a 15-year-old girl for sex, but he was actually communicating with an undercover officer.
23-year-old Noble Soloman May has been arrested and his being held on a $50,000 bond. The investigation was part of a joint effort with the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, Miller County Sheriff’s Office, United States Marshal’s Service and Bowie County Sheriff’s Office.
In online conversations, May told the undercover officer posing as a 15-year-old girl that he wanted to meet and have sex. The undercover officer responded by saying that a 16-year-old friend could give her a ride. May allegedly asked if the friend had a little sister. The officer said that the friend had a 7-year-old sister. May reportedly asked the officer to bring the 7-year-old with her so that he could have sex with her also.
When May arrived at the arranged meeting spot, he was surprised to find law enforcement waiting for him, but he was arrested without incident.
