Man dressed as woman arrested for child pornography | Crime
Jonesboro police say a man dressed as a woman arranged to have sex with a 15-year-old boy at a local motel.
But, instead of meeting a boy, Gregory Aaron Smith, 25, of Brookland came face-to-face with the police officer he had been texting.
According to court records, on Wednesday Smith posted a personal ad on a popular website. The ad featured a phone number and photos of Smith dressed as a female.
In the photos he was wearing a wig, make-up and fake breasts, the affidavit stated.
An undercover officer posing as a 15-year-old boy sent a text to Smith.
After several texts the two arranged to meet Friday night for sex.
When officers arrived at the motel they reportedly saw Smith standing in the doorway of his room, dressed as a woman.
Smith was arrested without incident.
After he was read his Miranda rights Smith admitted texting the “juvenile,” but he said "that nothing ever happened," according to the court report.
Smith was charged with computer child pornography.
He is currently being held in the Craighead County Detention Center in lieu of $25,000 bond.
