Davenport, FL-- A month long, undercover investigation came to an end with the arrest of 50-year-old Carl Edward Csizmadia after he reportedly made online solicitations for sex with a minor, and traveled to meet a minor for sex.
The investigation began in September after Csizmadia made contact with an FDLE agent, who was working undercover by posing as a mother with two young children.
According to agents, Csizmadia made numerous online solicitations to the undercover agents to have sex with the children, followed up by him driving to a restaurant in Lakeland to meet the children for sex, reports say.
Csizmadia was arrested without incident with the assistance of the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the Lakeland Police Department, and booked at the Polk County jail.
Officials reportedly charged Csizmadia with one count of promoting sexual performance by a child, one count of traveling to meet a minor for sex, and three counts of online solicitation of a parent/guardian to have sex with a child.
