It’s stories like these that really make me miss the cringe-worthy To Catch a Predator.
Albert Maruna, a 22-year-old student at Youngstown State University in Austintown, OH was arrested last week after attempting to meet up with and engage in sexual activity with a 15-year-old boy. That 15-year-old boy turned out to be an undercover officer who was chatting with Maruna on a dating app.
According to Cleveland 19, Maruna engaged in a sexual and graphic conversation with the ‘minor’, sent nude pictures of himself, and set up to meet with the teen.
But here’s the kicker: Maruna agreed to bring lubricant to meeting in addition to some chicken Alfredo and Sprite.
Be still my heart!
Authorities arrived to the location where Maruna believed he would be meeting the 15-year-old boy and he was taken into custody. During the arrest, police searched and found the following items: iPhone, Macbook, three hard drives, Vaseline lotion, Astroglide lube—and yes, two bottles of Sprite and a container with chicken Alfredo!
Maruna is being charged with attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, possessing criminal tools (must be the chicken Alfredo), and importuning. He is currently being held in the Mahoning County Jail.
I wonder if he arrived on this motorcycle?
