An Ironwood man was one of 17 men arrested last month in Wisconsin during an online sex sting.
The three-day sting was called Operation Black Veil.
Twenty-four-year-old Benjamin Lahti from Ironwood was arrested in Minocqua, Wisconsin on March 12 after he posted an ad asking for sex on Craigslist. An undercover officer posing as a 15-year-old girl responded to his ad.
Lahti sent naked pictures of himself and asked to meet the 15-year old girl for sex.
Lahti is now facing felony charges, which include suspicion of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, exposing a child to harmful materials, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Over 100 officers from 15 agencies worked on the computer sting operation.
