Undercover Arapahoe County deputies bust alleged child predator Anthony Christopher Garcia

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Undercover deputies using an alias to impersonate a teenage girl arrested a man accused of soliciting sex with a minor.

Anthony Christopher Garcia, 46, was arrested on March 11, in the 9900 block of E. Peakview Ave. The Sheriff's Office says he is accused of internet luring of a child and internet sexual exploitation of a child. Both crimes are felonies.

Investigators say they were using their undercover profile to impersonate a 14-year-old girl when Garcia communicated with them about having sexual intercourse. The conversation allegedly involved explicit details of the sex he wanted.

Garcia and the undercover deputies arranged to meet on March 11 and he was arrested that afternoon. The Sheriff's Office says he later agreed to admit to asking for sex from who he thought was a teenage girl.

Bond is set at $50,000 in this case.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office at 303-795-4711.
