MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WCSC) - Deputies arrested a Myrtle Beach man last Thursday accused of using to solicit sex from children.

Georgetown County Sheriff's Office investigators say 25-year-old Henry F. Borgeson used the website to solicit sex from an individual he believed to be a minor child.  However, the "child" who answered his ad was actually an undercover deputy.

Arrest warrants allege Borgeson began texting and emailing the "child," and offered to pay for sex.  The deputy set up a location for a meeting and Borgeson was arrested and taken to the Georgetown County Detention Center.

He is charged with criminal solicitation of a minor, second degree attempted sexual conduct with a minor, and participating in the prostitution of a minor.

The Horry County Police Department assisted with the case.
