Macomb police said they arrested one person as part of what they called an undercover online investigation targeting people who use the internet to prey on children.

David Lafary, 63, of 315 North Ward Street, is charged with:

  • Indecent Solicitation of a Minor over the Internet
  • Solicitation to Meet a Minor

Police said Lafary solicited to have sex with a person he believed was age 15.

Police said they staged a meeting with Lafary at a public place in town midday Thursday. He was arrested after a traffic stop at Jefferson and Randolph Streets shortly after he left the location.
