Police arrest a man suspected of being a child predator.
Detectives from Albemarle County say Matthew Musselwhite thought he had been chatting with a 13 year-old girl and was going to meet her in Charlottesville.
Police arrested Musselwhite on Wednesday and charged him with soliciting a minor online, a felony offense.
The operation was funded by a grant from the Department of Criminal Justice Services, which provides overtimes hours and equipment for detectives to catch predators online.
