Police posed online as a child in an attempt to catch sexual predators. A 60-year-old suburban Detroit man was arrested in a Boba Fett Star Wars costume after meeting with these officers.
According to the Macomb County sheriff's office, Daniel Fritz of Canton Township is being charged with child sexually abusive activity and using a computer to communicate with another to commit a crime.
An investigation of Fritz began after an ad was posted on a social media website that was "highly indicative of child sexual exploitation." After seeing the ad officers set up a meeting for a fictitious sexual encounter in Roseville with Fritz, he was then arrested.
He is currently being held on bond pending a Nov. 12 preliminary examination in Roseville District Court. He was arraigned last Wednesday.
