Downstate Man Accused of Sex Crimes in Grand Traverse, St. Clair Counties

A six week state police undercover investigation ended with an arrest.

A Detroit-area man now faces charges in two counties, including one in Northern Michigan.

The state police computer crimes task force says they caught the 54-year-old man chatting online with who he thought was a 14-year-old Traverse City girl.

Investigators say he sent inappropriate pictures and videos and had graphic conversations while also attempting to meet in person.

The man now faces charges in St. Clair and Grand Traverse counties.
