Man will be deported after indecent contact with young girl
Met young girl online,drove to meet her several times police say
Roger Santos-Madrid, of 4315 Florida Ave. in Kenner, was arrested on Sept. 8 and booked with indecent behavior with a juvenile and computer aided solicitation of a minor.
Santos-Madrid had been chatting online with a young girl and the two met several times inside the parish, according to Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange, Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
“We know that they did meet several times and that there was physical interaction during those meetings, but we’re not sure how intimate they got,” LaGrange said.
The girl’s mother discovered that Santos-Madrid had been contacting her daughter online and called the Sheriff’s Office. LaGrange said that deputies were unable to locate Santos-Madrid at first and contacted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to help track down Santos-Madrid.
“It was eventually discovered that the girl was still in contact with Santos-Madrid through a cell phone and I.C.E. was able to find him,” LaGrange said. “He is now in our jail and he will be deported due to this arrest and his immigration status.”
LaGrange said that parents need to monitor their children’s Internet activity in case something like this happens.
“It’s unfortunate that predators such as Santos-Madrid pray on children that are vulnerable, but we are thankful that the mom took the steps she did before anything more happened,” he said. “It’s important for parents to monitor activity on social networking sites to keep their kids safe.”
