Deputies said a San Antonio man planned to meet who thought was a 13-year-old girl at a Brooksville hotel for sex.
Robert E. Smith, 61, was arrested Wednesday on charges of attempted lewd and lascivious behavior, traveling to meet/seduce a minor, and using a computer to solicit a minor.
According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, Smith had been engaged in long-term computer chats with a person he believed to be a 13-year-old girl. Over the course of the conversations, deputies said Smith asked to meet the girl.
The two arranged to meet at the Holiday Inn Express on Cortez Boulevard to engage in sexual activity, deputies said. Deputies said Smith said he would meet the girl at 2 p.m. and described the vehicle he would be driving.
Deputies then arrived at the scene and arrested Smith.
Investigators said they are now trying to determine whether there are any other victims.
Smith is being held in the Hernando County Detention Center on $17,000 bond.
