January 6, 2004  -- Posted at 7:42 AM CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR  --North Little Rock police have arrested two men in the past ten days for soliciting sex with minors.

The busts bring the total to 35 arrests in the past three years for a special investigations unit. Members of the unit pose online as juveniles to lure those looking to have sex with minors.

Last Friday, police arrested Robert Kimball Combs, a curator of a U-S Army museum in South Korea, and in December, Garrett Jason Weems of Chandler, Arizona, was arrested after flying to Little Rock.

Police say the used the ruse to convince each of the men they were meeting a mother and a daughter willing to have sex.
