TULSA, OK -- Detectives say 31-year-old Derekco "Reco" Eugene Sells thought he was meeting a 14-year-old student, but police were waiting for him instead.

Officers say Sells admitted to sending numerous nude pictures to a girl's phone and thought she would meet him for sex.

Police say Sells took the minor's phone from her during a football practice and called himself to obtain her number.

The scared minor told her mother who made a police report. A Tulsa Police Detective took over the identity of the minor and began conversing with Sells through text messages.
