YCSO keeps arresting guys seeking teens

The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office keeps arresting individuals who come to Yuma County expecting a sexual encounter with a minor.
The most recent occurred last Thursday, September 15, at approximately 4:30 a.m. in Yuma. A 30-year-old male had driven from the Front Range area expecting to meet a 13-year-old girl. He instead was met by a Yuma County Deputy, and was taken into custody without incident.
Another arrest involved a 23-year-old Yuma County man, who was taken into custody on August 24 at 11:30 p.m. at Rainbow Park in Wray. According to the YCSO, he went to the park hoping to meet a 13-year-old girl “for reasons that are quite frankly very explicit.”
That was the second one that week as a few days earlier a 40-year-old man from the Front Range traveled here to meet with a 14-year-old female in Eckley. He also was taken into custody without incident by a Yuma County Deputy.
The first of these arrests occurred on August 14 when a 40-year-old from the Front Range traveld to Wray expecting to meet up with a 13-year-old female. He instead was met by a Yuma County Deputy, and taken into custody without incident.
Sheriff Todd Combs told the Pioneer this is office is made aware of the individuals, at which point deputies chat online with the individuals, who think they are visiting with an underage minor. They are arrested after continuing the online relationship, and arrange to meet with the “minor” for sex.
