Perth County OPP says a 19-year-old male from Hanover has been charged in a child luring investigation.

They say the investigation began last October after a young person received messages over social media for a sexual purpose.

The investigation resulted in the man being arrested on Monday.

He’s been charged with Luring a Person Under 18 years of age by means of Telecommunications.

The man can’t be identified because of a publication ban and he’s scheduled to appear in court in Stratford on March 9th.
