NORTON -
In the most recent arrest involving child enticement in the region, a Lynn man is accused of trying to entice a 13-year-old girl online,
Robert C. Walsh III, 31, of 62 Verdmont Ave., Lynn, was arrested at his home about 12:30 p.m. Thursday and charged with child enticement. He was to be arraigned today in Attleboro District Court.
Armed with both an arrest and search warrant, Norton police detectives, Lynn police and members of the Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council Computer Crime Unit went to the home and seized several computers.
The investigation, led by Norton Detective Todd Bramwell, was started in June when a 13-year-old girl was contacted online in a chat room. The girl told her mother, who called Norton police.
Investigators then posed online as the girl and communicated with the suspect, authorities said.
Assisting Bramwell in the investigation were Detective Sgt. Thomas Petersen, Detective Steve Desfosses and members of Metropolitan Law Enforcement Counsel Computer Crime Unit.
Throughout the region, state and local investigators have been online, posing as children, to catch predators trying to lure youngsters into sexual encounters.

I grew up in the small town of Norton and this is a huge bust for them. Congratulations on all the officers who worked on this case! Keep up the fine work.
