Police have arrested a Mooresville man accused of trying to hookup online with a "15 year-old" girl.

Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox said Jeffrey Hance, 54, thought he was chatting with a teen, but he was not. He was actually chatting with one of the sheriff's employees who was posing as a 15 year-old.

Investigators said Hance emailed a nude picture of himself, grabbed condoms and drove to Greenwood to meet the girl. But as he approached her, he was arrested for child solicitation.

The sheriff setup Wednesday's sting after getting reports that Hance was having sex with underage girls.
