A Grimes teenager is in custody in Arkansas accused of raping a young girl he met online.

Adam Webb was arrested and charged Monday on suspicion of rape.

Authorities say the 18-year-old drove to Arkansas in April and had sex with a 12-year-old girl he met online.

The sheriff’s office was notified of the incident. When Webb returned to the girl’s home this week, police were waiting for him.

He has been arrested on suspicion of rape and distributing, possessing or viewing of matter depicting explicit content involving a child.

Webb is being held on a $250,000 bond in Franklin County, Arkansas.

    How does this qualify as a “sting” operation? Typically a sting is when the girl online is a police officer. Here, the girl reported him to police and they arrested him when he came back to Arkansas.
