ROSWELL, Ga. (AP) - A part-time police officer in a Georgia community has been fired after he allegedly traveled to a Roswell shopping center to engage in a sex act with a child.

Roswell Police spokeswoman Lisa Holland says 42-year-old Abraham Flores Galvan, of Hiram, Georgia, was arrested Thursday on charges of obscene internet contact with a child and enticing a child to commit an illegal act. He’s being held in the Fulton County jail on $20,000 bond. It was unknown if he’s represented by an attorney.

Galvan worked with police in Tunnel Hill, about 95 miles north of Atlanta. Police Chief Roy Brunson, in a statement, said Galvan was fired Friday.

Holland says Galvan was caught as a result of an undercover operation targeting online child predators.
