Mauldin Police Nab Benjamin James Threatt in Online Predator Sting

Benjamin James Threatt arrested in Internet predator stingHave people just not seen Chris Hansen’s To Catch a Predator series, or are they just convinced they’re smarter than the other pervs?

Benjamin James Threatt, 20, of Lancaster was busted in an Internet predator sting last Thursday when he allegedly tried to solicit a Mauldin cop posing online as an underage  girl.  The sting was part of the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC).

Fred Cunningham of News Channel 7 reports:

Threatt is charged with one count of criminal solicitation of a minor. The charge is punishable by up to ten years in prison.

The ICAC says Threatt solicited sex on the internet from an individual he believed to be minor girl beginning in July. He was actually communicating with an undercover Mauldin Police officer.

Authorities have taken computer equipment from Threatt’s home into evidence and are holding him at the Greenville County Detention Center on $30,000 bond.

    I believe this was a while ago, but to whomever his neighbors are, he befriended me on Facebook and was constantly talking about his obsession with his 12 year old neighbor.
