Man Busted When He Shows Up At Motel To Have Sex With Child

A man had arranged for a disturbing encounter at a motel in Henrico County, Virginia, but things didn’t work out as he had planned. According to WTVR, he would instead have an encounter with Federal agents, as well as state and local police departments.

Louis Ponterio, 54, had arranged an encounter with what had thought was a woman and her five-year-old daughter, with the intention of Louis having sex with the child. Thankfully, police were tipped off to his plans, as Lt. Chris Eley explains.

"Members of the Henrico County Police Division’s Vice Unit received information that Ponterio had attempted to procure a minor for the purpose of a sexual relationship. On February 6, 2015, Ponterio communicated with an individual who he believed was arranging an encounter with a minor. On February 7, 2015, Ponterio was arrested in the 5200 block of Williamsburg Road after he traveled to Henrico County with intent to engage in sexual activity with a minor," he said.

Ponterio was arrested, and the agents on the scene seized numerous items from his possession including cough syrup, a teddy bear and marijuana. A search of his home turned up digital evidence, weapons and marijuana plants.
