55-year-old Martin Vohwinkel, which no offense sounds like the name of a child molester, of Henderson, Nevada was arrested for using craigslist’s casual encounters section to try to set up a meeting with a minor for sex. Vohwinkel is also a captain of the Clark County Fire Department.
Vohwinkel allegedly placed an ad that said he was looking for sex with a young girl. As is usual in these cases the response to his ad came from the Henderson police posing as a 14-year-old girl. Vohwinkel allegedly said that he wanted to meet the girl ASAP and that the younger the better and that he was *shudder* horny.
The best part is when police set up the meeting and went to arrest him they called a number that Vohwinkel had provided the ‘girl’ and his phone rang.
Again this ‘allegedly’ happened on the craigslist casual encounters section. Where was the self policing by the craigslist community? Oh that’s right, there was none so the real police had to get involved.
