Man Allegedly Uses Craigslist To Lure Teen To Hotel
A Sellersville man faces a list of charges after allegedly using Craigslist to lure a teen girl to a hotel. Officials with the U-S Department of Homeland Security say, 39-year-old, Michael Barndt thought he was communicating with a 14-year-old girl, but on the other end of the messages he was receiving through yahoo, was an agent with homeland security. According to court documents, filed in Delaware, Barndt used the phrase “Real Teen Fantasy” in his search for a teenage girl. Barndt sent messages to the agent, who he thought to be a 14-year-old girl between June 7th and June 13th. He’s charged with attempted coercion and enticement of a minor, along with attempted transfer of obscene matter to a minor.
