The Millstadt Police Department is investigating after the online group Truckers Against Predators posted a live Facebook video appearing to show a 62-year-old Millstadt man attempting to meet who he thought was a 12-year-old girl for sex earlier in the week. The girl was actually a decoy. The video was widely circulated on Facebook. “While the video speaks for itself, a great deal of investigative work is needed to be done in a case like this before the final report is submitted to the prosecuting attorney’s office,” Millstadt police stated in a press release. “Because the incident did not completely occur within our jurisdiction, multiple agencies including the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office and Illinois State Police are working in tandem with us to ensure everything is done completely. Unfortunately some of this does take time.”
