The Coal City Police Department arrested a man for indecent solicitation of a child on South Broadway Street around 10:49 p.m. on May 1st.

Police officials say Dillon Harris, 20, of Coal City is accused of meeting up with a 15-year-old female child for sexual purposes in Coal City on Saturday.

Police officials say the teenage female was a male, who runs an organization who poses as underage females on online dating websites in order to catch adults attempting to have sexual relationships with minors.

When asked why he wanted to meet up with a 15-year-old female, Harris told officers that he just wanted to know if she was a real person because people are not always who they say they are.

The Coal City Police Department also said the man posing as the underage female had asked Harris if it was okay if he was 15-years-old.

Harris replied “Your Good” and then said “Just don’t want to end up on to catch a predator.”

After receiving messages and other evidence, Harris was transported to the Grundy County Jail by the Coal City Police Department.
