Jose Garcia (l), Ankur Bambhrolia are two of the nine North Texas men arrested last week during a sexual predator sting in Fort Worth. Undercover officers posed as 13-year-old girls online.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Jose Garcia thought he was going to have sex with a 13-year-old girl — in exchange for two tacos and a coke, the Star-Telegram reported.

Investigators placed advertisements on various social media sites seeking anyone interested in sexual encounters with female or male minors — actually undercover officers trained on how to chat with child predators.


Seven men have been charged with online solicitation of a minor under 14.
