Another online solicitation suspect arrested

User Rating: / 52

Internet Crimes Against Children investigators with Hopkins County Sheriff's Department and Sulphur Springs Police Department arrested another potential child predator Wednesday evening. Chief Sheriff's Investigator Lewis Tatum said a 30-year-old Tyler man had been communicating with what he thought was a 15-year-old girl through email and text messages. The communication describing a number of different sexual activities was, in fact, with Sgt. Amanda Weatherford, not a teenager. “The ICAC team of Amanda and Corley Weatherford arrested another one last night,” Tatum said. “Joshua Strickland out of Tyler showed up at the same location to pick up a 15-year-old female. We keep arresting them, and they keep coming.” Tatum said officers placed the man under surveillance when he arrived at a local hotel and followed him to his planned meeting place on League Street. As the man arrived at a convenience store parking lot, he spotted officers and attempted to flee the area but was blocked in by police and sheriff's deputies. Strickland, Tatum said, initially resisted officers attempts to take him into custody. “The officers were well organized and it did not take them but just a second to put him into custody,” he said. After the arrest, officers went to the man's hotel room where they located less than a gram of methamphetamine along with a glass pipe and another bag of meth in the man's pocket. Joshua Cain Strickland, 30, of Tyler was booked into Hopkins County jail on charges of online solicitation of a minor and felony possession of a controlled substance.
