GLOUCESTER CITY, N.J. -- Authorities say a New York state man drove to southern New Jersey to have sex with someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl.
But Camden County prosecutors say the person Stephen Epolito was chatting with online was actually an undercover investigator.
The 37-year-old Syracuse man was charged with attempting to lure a child via electronic means to a meeting with the purpose of committing a criminal offense.
Prosecutors say he was arrested Thursday when he arrived in Gloucester City.
Epolito's bail was set at $100,000 cash.
It wasn't known Saturday if Epolito has retained an attorney. A telephone number for him could not be located.
