PAINESVILLE, OH (WOIO) - Robert Jones, 65 was arraigned in Painesville Municipal Court Monday afternoon after police busted him for trying to find a 10-year-old to have sex with.
Police say a man came to them on Thursday saying Jones offered him $300 to find him a boy.
Fortunately the person who got Jones' request called police. They then used an undercover officer to set up a fake offer. A man who lives next door to Jones and has a 10 year-old daughter of his own says Jones never really came out of his house and no one really knows him.
"I always got my kid here, I always take care of them. That's what dads do is take of them and keep an eye on your kids," said Robert Jones' neighbor.
Police began their investigation and made a recorded phone call to Jones about setting him up with a boy. They arrested him on Sunday.
Jones' bond was set at $50,000.
