A local man is accused of trying to meet a 13-year-old girl for sex in St. Charles County, Missouri. Authorities there say 32-year-old Kyle Bradbury of the 100 block of East 5th Street in Hartford drove to an O'Fallon gas station from his home over the weekend, thinking he was meeting an underage teen he'd met online. Bradbury had actually been talking with an undercover police officer posing as a young girl. Bradbury was arrested at the scene.
St. Charles County Prosecutors allege Bradbury sent sexually explicit messages and set up the meeting. Authorities say they later found images of child porn on his cell phone. He remains in custody in Missouri charged with enticement of a child and possession of child pornography.
