TAZEWELL, Tenn (WVLT) A Claiborne County man is out on bond tonight after police arrested him in a sting operation.
Claiborne County Sheriff David Ray says Birchel Lynn Bussell, Jr., 35, of Forge Ridge was arrested after attempting to meet an underage girl for sex.
Authorities were tipped off by a woman who found a flier on her car.
That flier allegedly had nude pictures of Bussell on it with e-mail addresses.
Deputies set up a sting, telling Bussell to bring a single red rose, which Sheriff Ray says they also found in his vehicle.
During questioning, deputies say Bussell confessed.
Sheriff Ray says new developments are expected.
