— A Salisbury man has been arrested in Fayetteville as part of an Internet sex sting, authorities said.

James Hosch was arrested at a McDonald's, where he worked as a custodian, and was charged with soliciting through a computer someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

The "girl" was actually a deputy working as part of a sting set up by the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department, authorities said.

Deputies said naked pictures of Hosch were sent to the "girl," and a meeting was arranged with Hosch.
