A Lakeville man has been charged with soliciting a 13-year-old boy from Maplewood for sex after police set up an online sting to track him down.
The arrest of Robert Gregg Trummer, 49, came after police learned the boy had been in communication with Trummer online. Investigators found Trummer’s IP address and phone number through Craigslist, where his posts read “Daddy’s looking… for his boi” in the casual encounter section.
An undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old contacted Trummer, which led to the evidence police needed. Charged with two felony counts of soliciting a minor to engage in sexual conduct, Trummer remains in Dakota County Jail on $250,000 bond, awaiting his April 24 hearing.
