MILTON, Fla. – The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, with assistance from the Pensacola State College Police Department, arrested Jorge Rafael Carias, 24, of 4137 Avalon Blvd., Milton, Fla. today on charges of using a computer to solicit a parent or guardian for sex with a child, traveling to meet a child for sex, and transmitting harmful material to a minor. 
This case was investigated by members of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force including FDLE, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations, Okaloosa and Walton County Sheriff’s Offices, and Pensacola Police Department. 
The investigation began in July, 2015, when Carias engaged in a series of email and text messages with an undercover officer who Carias believed to be the parent of a 12 year old girl.
During the email and text exchanges, Carias solicited the undercover officer to have sex with the supposed girl in exchange for cash.  He also sent a pornographic photo of himself and sexual messages to the supposed child before traveling to a local motel for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with a child.
Carias was located earlier today at Pensacola State College and transported to the Escambia County Jail on a $60,000 bond. The case will be prosecuted by the Office of the State Attorney, 1st Judicial Circuit.
