Randolph man and Massachusetts resident are busted
LEBANON, NH - Detectives posing as underaged teens netted two men this week as part of an on-going sex sting operation "targeting individuals who are looking to victimize children," Lebanon Police announced Wednesday.
Peter Florucci, 51, of Randolph, Vermont was arrested at a local park in Lebanon on Tuesday when he showed up for what police said he believed was going to be a sexual encounter with a juvenile he thought he had been chatting with in an on-line social media forum.
Edward Vasquez, 37, of Lawrence, Massachusetts was arrested outside a shopping mall in Lebanon on Wednesday morning under similar circumstances.
Florucci was held overnight on $20,000 bail and both men were due in court later Wednesday to be arraigned on felony charges of attempted sexual assault and using a computer for prohibited purposes.
