An Emmetsburg-area man is accused of trying to entice a minor.
Police say 39-year-old Robert Barker was charged after a sting operation organized by the state DCI. Police were told about graffiti in a public restroom soliciting young boys for sexual activity. Barker was arrested Wednesday after he went to a home in Emmetsburg where he thought he’d be meeting a 15-year-old boy for sex.
Authorities got a search warrant for his home in rural Palo Alto County. Computers and other evidence were seized. More charges could be filed.
