SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) - A northwest Iowa city clerk has been arrested and charged after police say he tried to meet an underage boy in Nebraska for sex.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1r8w0Dm ) that Lawton, Iowa, City Clerk Douglas Furlich has been charged with sexual assault through use of an electronic device.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the 60-year-old posted an ad online saying he was “looking for a younger guy.” The patrol says an undercover officer responded, pretending to be a 15-year-old boy. Court documents say Furlich went to a South Sioux City park Thursday night to meet with the boy. He was met by police and arrested.

Furlich is being held on $250,000 bail. He remained in the Dakota County Jail on Sunday and could not be reached for comment.
