2 Accused of Targeting Pedophiles for Robberies in Colorado
LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) — Loveland police have arrested two people who they say tried to lure pedophiles with children to a secluded spot so they could rob the pedophiles and kidnap the kids.
Police said Monday that 20-year-old Dustin Canup and 18-year-old Sareena Morrison, both of Loveland, face charges including conspiracy to commit kidnapping, aggravated robbery and extortion.
The Associated Press reports that an arrest affidavit says the two are accused of posting messages on a sex website and targeting men who agreed to bring a child to a motel for sex acts. The couple allegedly told investigators their plan was to rob or extort money from the men who responded and to raise the child as their own.
