Three weeks ago, Historic City News crime reporters learned that a Clay County man had solicited a St Johns County teenage girl who he met on a social media website, and arranged, on one or more occasions, to meet her for sex.
Detectives gathered enough evidence in the investigation of 53-year-old David Leonard Reed, who resides at 3180 Fox Squirrel Drive in Orange Park, to obtain an arrest warrant for the man on Tuesday.
The victim is 17-years-old according to her mother who reported the unlawful sexual activity with the minor.
On yesterday, Reed was located in Duval County by Jacksonville Sheriff’s deputies; and, after the warrant was verified, officers took Reed into custody without incident.
Reed remains the Duval County Jail in lieu of bond totaling $105,000.
