Investigators with the computer crimes unit of the Canadian County Sheriff’s office arrested a Stillwater man after he arrived at a Yukon theater believing he was meeting two underage girls.

Stephen Sloan, 30, had been conversing with an undercover officer for several days who he thought he was a 15-year-old girl.

“Sgt. (Adam) Flowers had been posing as a 15-year-old girl only minutes online when he was approached by Sloan,” Sheriff Randall Edwards said. “Sloan immediately began talking about having explicit sex with what he believed to be a 15-year-old girl.”

Investigators convinced Sloan to go to a Yukon theater where he believed he was going to meet with the girl and her friend. Sloan was immediately arrested after arriving at the theater on March 23 and was taken into custody where he provided a full confession, Edwards said.

Sloan was transported to the Canadian County Jail where he awaits arraignment and bond set by a district court judge on child-sex predator charges.
