Man accused of meeting young girl for sex while dressed as a woman | Crime
An Ozark Gateway man who thought he was talking to a 14-year-old girl got quite a shock Wednesday when he found out she was actually an undercover police officer.
Police were also surprised when he showed up wearing women’s clothing.
Carl Dahn, 31, of Bergman was arrested and charged with computer child pornography and internet stalking of a child.
The arrest followed a months-long investigation, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
During that time Dahn is accused of sending pornographic images of himself and engaging in sexually explicit chats with what he thought was a teenage girl. It was actually an undercover investigator with the sheriff’s office.
Dahn reportedly arranged a meeting with the “girl” at a business in Harrison.
When officers arrived at the prearranged time they found Dahn waiting. According to the news release, he was dressed in women’s clothing.
Officers “quickly arrested” Dahn without incident and took him to the Marion County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond.
The Harrison and Flippin Police Departments assisted in the arrests.
