FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – An Aventura man was arrested Tuesday after he solicited an undercover detective who was posing as a 13-year-old on the Internet, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Reid Rago, 45, faces charges of solicitation of a child and traveling to meet a minor.

According to an arrest report, the detective contacted Rago in September using an online forum, where he had posted that he was "looking for a young butt to rim."

"I am okay with your age, but needs to be our secret," Rago wrote, according to the report. "I am not looking for drama or trouble. Just fun."

According to the report, Rago's conversation turned sexual, and he sent two photographs of himself to the detective.

The communication stopped until Oct. 9, when Rago sent another message saying, according to the report, "I want to get naughty with you." The next day, Rago sent another message asking, according to the report, "Want sex tonight?"

According to the report, Rago arranged to meet with the detective in Dania Beach. The report said Rago was arrested after traveling to Dania Beach on Tuesday to engage in sexual acts with whom he thought was a teenager.
