The Utah County Sheriff's Office says a California man allegedly was intent on having sex with a 13-year-old Utah girl, and had also targeted two more young female targets in Colorado.
Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon says Jason Reed Akers, 38, of Ontario, Calif., was arrested Wednesday at an otherwise unspecified Utah County public location where he had been led to believe the underage girl would meet him.
Actually, the "girl" Akers allegedly had made Internet contact with on Monday was an agent of the Utah Valley Special Victims Task Force.
"After he arrived there Akers was arrested by detectives. During the course of the investigation detectives [also] found methamphetamine, marijuana, spice, drug paraphernalia, and a handgun," Cannon stated.
