SOUTH HAVEN (WKZO) -- A suspected sex predator from Allegan who police say may have liked to prey on young girls may have been tripped up by dialing the wrong number.
State Police say 24-year-old Robert Cura apparently thought he was texting a 13-year-old girl, soliciting her for sex, but apparently the messages went to a South Haven resident, who called the Southwest Michigan Enforcement Team.
They texted the suspect back, posing as the girl, allegedly verifying his intent and setting up a meeting. When the suspect, showed up, he was arrested.
A search of his home turned up a laptop and a facebook address showing he had been communicating with a number of other under-aged girls. They intend to follow up with those girls to see just how far it went.
He is being held for accosting a child under 16 for immoral purposes and on 100-thousand dollars bond.
