A part-time officer for the Tunnel Hill Police Department has been arrested and faces charges after authorities say he responded to an offer on the internet to have sex with a child.

The Tunnel Hill Police Department confirms the arrest of Abraham Flores Galvan in Roswell, Georgia.

Police tell the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Galvan traveled to a Roswell Shopping Center on Woodstock Road on Thursday, with the intent to engage in sexual acts with a child under the age of consent, and that he believed the person he was speaking with online was a 14-year-old girl.

This turned out to be a multi-agency undercover operation, and police say as soon as Galvan arrived, officers arrested him and charged him with obscene internet contact with a child and enticing a child to commit an illegal Act.

Tunnel Hill Police tell NewsChannel 9 that upon learning of the arrest, the department suspended him immediately. Sergeant Trey Rider tells us that before Galvan was hired, the Tunnel Hill P.D. ran a background check on him, which didn't reveal any prior illegal activity or charges.

Rider says Galvan only worked "several shifts" for the department.

This is a developing story. Depend on us to bring you updates as we get them.
