The LeFlore County Sheriff's Office says they've arrested a man for allegedly making a lewd or indecent proposal to a minor.

Michael Cody Eslick, 27, was arrested after a six month investigation, where he attempted to meet a 14-year-old girl to have sexual relations with her.

Deputies say that Eslick had been messaging the girl asking for "topless" pictures and asking her to have sex with him.

LeFlore County Deputy, Sgt Winn set up a meeting, but Eslick did not show up.

Eslick was then located at the Choctaw Travel Plaza where the Tribal police arrested him for an outstanding felony warrant.
