PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 45-year-old man was arrested near Eugene for suspected internet child sex crimes.

Detectives served a search warrant on the house and LCSO said they were able to determine that Lon Curtis Coffey, a former resident of the house, had uploaded the images.

Officials also said that they learned that two years ago Coffey had attempted to groom an 11-year-old girl. Detectives said they used the girl’s Facebook account to message Coffey, who replied by saying he would like to have sex with the now 13-year-old.
