The Placer County Sheriff’s Office say two men were arrested for allegedly using the internet to meet minors for sex.
The first man, 23-year-old Matthew Ishizaki, was arrested Jan. 7 in Auburn. Investigators had posed as a 13-year-old boy and spoke online with Ishizaki. When police say Ishizaki went to meet the boy, he was confronted by detectives.
Tuesday, 38-year-old Ryan Coats was arrested at his workplace. Detectives say he set up a meeting with what he thought was a 13-year-old girl, but added that they had enough evidence to arrest him.
Both men are charged with arranging to meet a minor for sex. Ishizaki is also charged with attempting to commit a lewd act with someone under the age of 13. Coats is also charged with distributing harmful material to a minor.
