Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Casa Grande, and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office arrested 45-year-old Scott Buckley of Las Vegas, Nevada, on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019.
The investigation started in November 2018 when Buckley logged into a social media application and initiated a conversation with a Pinal County Sheriff’s undercover detective, who was posing as a minor.
The undercover detective was upfront about being underage.
Buckley quickly began having inappropriate conversations and sending lewd pictures and videos of himself to the detective.
The suspect offered to exchange money for nude pictures and sexual acts and indicated he was willing to purchase a bus ticket from Phoenix to Las Vegas to engage in sexual acts.
