Investigators said Nathan Baker posted an advertisement on Craigslist seeking sex, believing he was talking to a 14-year-old girl. An undercover detective agreed to meet Baker at an undisclosed location in Grandview Heights, where Baker was arrested.

Baker’s computer and cell phone were taken for evidence. Bond was set at $20,000 cash in Franklin County Municipal Court on Saturday. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for March 4.

No additional information was available from calls to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. Calls to the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce were unreturned as of press time.
