A former Rolling Hills police officer is under federal investigation after authorities discovered that the man had been using an online dating app to either get underage girls to send him pornographic pictures of themselves or arrange to have sex with these girls. While the investigation has yet to lead to any charges, a 2019 affidavit seeking to search the former officer’s home was unsealed recently. The affidavit appeared to contain transcripts of conversations between the defendant and underage girls offering money for sex.
The officer was linked to an account on the dating site Seeking Arrangements which had several complaints filed against it for child exploitation. The website markets itself as a “Sugar Daddy” website on which ostensibly younger women can find rich older men. Why such a site would allow minors to have accounts in the first place is another matter for consideration. The officer’s account was closed after the complaints were filed against him. While the officer has resigned from the police force amid the allegations, he is not named in the news due to the fact that he was not charged with any crime.
