Alleged sexual predator busted in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2015

A man who traveled a long ways to Ottawa was allegedly intending to have sex with a teenage boy.

Twenty-eight-year-old  Shane Meyers of Gillette, Wyoming was arrested Tuesday at an Ottawa hotel. He’s accused of showing up there to have sex with a 14-year-old boy whom he sent sexually explicit material to on the internet. Members of the Ottawa PD, state police and FBI Child Exploitation Task Force were all waiting for Meyers in Ottawa.

He was arrested for indecent solicitation of a child and travelling to meet a minor. Both are felony charges.

Meyers was taken to the La Salle County Jail.
