FBI agents have arrested a Knoxville man in Catoosa County, Ga., on charges that he tried to solicit a minor child for sex.
Tim Grub, 27, was arrested Sunday and charged with attempting to solicit a minor child for sex, said Stacie J. Bohanan, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Knoxville.
Mr. Grub traveled to Catoosa County after having engaged undercover officers and/or agents of the FBI's Northwest Georgia Crimes Against Children Task Force in a series of chats on the Internet, Ms. Bohanan said.
Grub, an employee at a satellite radio firm, is currently being detained at the Catoosa County Jail.
The Northwest Georgia Crimes Against Children Task Force consists of federal agents from the FBI and officers from the Whitfield County Sheriff's Office, Dalton Police Department, Dade County Sheriff's Office, Rossville Police Department, and the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office.
This is the second such arrest of a Tennessee man on charges he solicited a child via the Internet in the last week.
