WYNNE, AR (KAIT) -

A man was arrested in Wynne after investigators say he tried to meet what he thought was a teenage girl for sex after church.

According to the First Judicial District Drug Task Force, Dillon Hodge, 25, told the person he thought was 14 years old that he could be whatever age she wanted him to be.

Hodge sent the individual photos of his genitalia, repeatedly offered to perform sex acts on her, and told her several times he wanted to meet up for sex.

He also sent a video of “him performing a sex act on himself in the shower.”

During the investigation, the individual told Hodge she was still in class and he then asked her for pictures of her breasts.

Hodge then agreed to meet the individual after Wednesday night church.

That’s when the task force, Arkansas State Police, and detectives at the Wynne Police Department arrested him.

Hodge eventually admitted to the messages and admitted to sending sexually explicit pictures.

He faces a felony charge of internet stalking of a child. However, Hodge also had a glass meth pipe at the time of the arrest.

According to online records, Hodge was booked into the Cross County Detention Center shortly before 9:40 p.m.
