2 charged with soliciting minors

MACON COUNTY -- Two men were arrested Wednesday after police say they posted ads online seeking sex from minors.

69-year old Joseph Lump and 52-year old Duane Stukins were arrested in separate cases. They both face multiple solicitation and sex charges.

Authorities say each posted ads on Craigslist; one looking for a 15-year old boy and the other looking for a 15-year old girl.

The Decatur Juvenile Detective Unit found the ads and answered them, posing as young kids. They agreed to meet the men at locations where they were subsequently arrested.

Lump reportedly had a video camera in his fan to record the act. He's also charged with attempted production of child pornography.

It took investigators three weeks to complete both cases. These are the first two arrests they've been able to make this year.

Detectives say parents can help prevent this type of crime by knowing your child's passwords to cellphones and computers, plus, monitor who they're talking to.
