O.C. man arrested after allegedly planning sex with 13-year-old
Ian Victor Kincheloe, 25, was arrested on suspicion of attempting to have sex with a minor on Wednesday at the Huntington Beach Pier, sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino told the Daily Pilot.
The meeting had been set up after a chat with her over the Internet, phone and text messaging, Amormino said.
"He thought he was targeting a 13-year-old girl, but he was actually talking to an agent from Homeland Security," Amormino said.
The agent is part of a task force of investigators from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Postal Service and the Orange County Sherrif's Department that investigates Internet child exploitation.
Police found condoms, handcuffs and alcohol in his vehicle, Amormino said. He had also allegedly arranged for a hotel stay near Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
He was released the same day on $100,000 bail. His court hearing is expected to be set within the next 30 days, Amormino said.
