WOODWAY, Texas (KWTX) Woodway police Monday arrested a Moody man who was snared in an online child sex sting.

Jimmy Lee Smith, 33, is charged with online solicitation of a minor.

He was arrested Monday at his home.

The arrest comes after Woodway officers posing on line as a 16-year-old girl communicated through social media with a man who requested “several sexually explicit photographs…and also sent sexually offensive images of himself,” police said in a press release.

The man was reminded of the girl’s age several times “and acknowledged he could get in trouble,” police said.

“He also asked officers to delete the messages.”
