Rockingham, N.C. — A Southern Pines man has been accused of child solicitation as the result of an undercover operation.
On Wednesday, a Rockingham police detective posed online as a 15-year-old girl.
Authorities said Robert Quentin Bailey II, 35, of 834 Leak St., in Southern Pines, solicited sex and agreed to provide alcohol to the person he thought was a minor.
Bailey was arrested and charged with one count of soliciting a child by computer and one count of resisting a public officer.
He was being held Thursday in the Richmond County Jail under $10,000 bond. Bailey’s court appearance was scheduled for Feb. 2.
