TWO MEN CHARGED AFTER INVESTIGATIONS INTO CHILD GROOMING

Two men will front court accused of the online grooming of a teenage girl following investigations into child exploitation.

In the first investigation, Strike Force Trawler officers posed as a 13 year old girl and engaged in online chat with a Northern Rivers man.

The 40 year old is accused of making sexually explicit comments and arranging to meet her in person.

Detectives arrested the man yesterday on the Evans River, Evans Head.

Police searched properties at Evans Head and Casino seizing several electronic devices, and items of clothing.

He’s been charged with using a carriage service to procure a person under 16-years-old for sexual activity.

In a second investigation, officers engaged online with a man from Northern NSW.

Police allege this man believed he was speaking to a 14-year-old girl and made numerous sexually explicit comments and sent child abuse material.

The 31 year old was arrested on Monday at an Alstonville business and charged with using a carriage service to groom a person under 16-years-old for sexual activity.
