ROSEVILLE, Mich. (AP) - A 60-year-old suburban Detroit man has been arrested in a Star Wars costume after meeting with police officers who posed online as a child.

The Macomb County sheriff’s office says Daniel Fritz of Wayne County’s Canton Township is charged with child sexually abusive activity and using a computer to communicate with another to commit a crime.

Officials say the investigation started after an ad “highly indicative of child sexual exploitation” was posted on a social media website. Detectives set up a fictitious sexual encounter in Roseville and arrested Fritz.

He was wearing a costume like that of the Star Wars character Boba Fett.

Fritz was arraigned last Wednesday. He’s being held on bond pending a Nov. 12 preliminary examination in Roseville District Court.
