SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) - A 74-year-old Sierra Vista man is in custody for allegedly trying to lure a teenage girl for sexual conduct through text messages.

Police say Jerry Orr was arrested outside The Mall at Sierra Vista about 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Detectives with the Sierra Vista Police Department’s Special Operations Bureau began investigating Orr on Tuesday.

They say they were notified that Orr allegedly was sending text messages of a sexual nature to the 13-year-old girl.

After his arrest, a search warrant was executed at his home and police say additional evidence related to the investigation was discovered.

Orr is being held on suspicion of one count of aggravated luring a minor for sexual exploitation and two counts of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.
