A 33-year-old Lake County man remains in Placer County jail after being arrested earlier this week on suspicion of attempting to arrange a meeting with a Roseville teen for sexual purposes.
Robert George Schmidt, 33, of Lakeport, allegedly drove to Roseville on Sept. 29 to meet with a male teen, according to the Roseville Police Department.
The boy's parents, who had found "inappropriate" text messages on his cell phone, intervened and confronted Schmidt, the police said.
A police investigation concluded the contact began in January online. On Oct. 16, Roseville Police Detectives with the help of the Lake County Sheriff's department arrested Schmidt.
He is being held pending bail of $400,000.
