A Broken Arrow man is in jail accused of attempting to meet an underage girl for sex.

Within an hour of creating a fake profile on the app KIK, investigators say, Steven Lindsey was on his way to meet who he thought was a 15-year-old girl for sex.

Investigators say the person Lindsey was talking to online was actually an undercover Okmulgee County deputy.

When Lindsey arrived at the Okmulgee public library, he was met by law enforcement instead of a young girl.

“It’s very alarming that it can be that quick and easy and that people are willing to meet anybody anywhere to do whatever it is they’re going to do,” stated Aaron Swayze from the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office.

Lindsey is being held at the Okmulgee County Jail on several complaints, including indecent proposal to a minor and attempting to procure child pornography.
