Punxsutawney, PA – Officers caught another local man in an online child predator sting recently.

At the beginning of December, a still unnamed 34-year-old Punxsutawney man started to send repeated messages to an underage social media profile that police had set up.

When they replied saying that the girl in the profile was only 15 years old, the Punxsy man still continued to send the girl explicit photos and asked her for photos back.

The man agreed to meet with the girl on Dec. 15.

He was caught by police at a Sheetz gas station while he was stopped to fuel up his truck before he was expecting to meet with the underage profile.

Officers will continue to investigate the case before any further details are released.
