Chalk another one up for the good guys and another alleged child molester busted and behind bars. Law enforcement authorities in Henrico, Virginia report that they arrested 54-year-old Louis Ponterio for trying to have sex with a five-year-old girl.
Ponterio thought he had made a deal to meet with a woman and her five-year-old daughter at the Econo Lodge in Henrico, but when he showed up, he was arrested by undercover police agents.
“Members of the Henrico County Police Division’s Vice Unit received information that Ponterio had attempted to procure a minor for the purpose of a sexual relationship,” Henrico Police spokesman Lt. Chris Eley noted in a press conference. “On February, 6th, 2015, Ponterio communicated with an individual who he believed was arranging an encounter with a minor. On February 7th, 2015, Ponterio was arrested in the 5200 block of Williamsburg Road after he traveled to Henrico County with intent to engage in sexual activity with a minor.”
Agents were able to also seize “marijuana, a teddy bear, cough syrup, Hershey’s kisses, a sex toy and other times from Ponterio,” based on a report from local station WTVR 6. A search of Ponterio’s home recovered marijuana, weapons, and other digital evidence.
Ponterio is being held without bond, and is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, electronic means for procuring minors, object sexual penetration by force, sale and distribution of marijuana, forcible intercourse with a victim under 13, and prostitution.
Not only was this creep planning to violate a little girl, he was carrying a bag full of drugs, toys, and candy. Thank gosh this guy is off the streets.
