BAXTER COUNTY, Ark. — A Kansas man has been arrested after a complaint was made saying he was driving to Mountain Home to meet with a 16-year-old girl.

Andrew O’Brien, 31, an active military service member stationed in Fort Riley, Kansas, had been communicating with the girl via social media.

She had been sending him sexually explicit photos and videos at his request, according to the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office.

The complaint was made because the parents felt concerned about their child’s safety. O’Brien arranged to meet the minor early Saturday morning at a business parking lot on Hwy 5, south of Mountain Home.

After setting up surveillance at the area, a sheriff’s deputy witnessed a vehicle drive past the location twice around 12:47 a.m., then pull into the parking lot.

Once parked, O’Brien sent the teenager a text telling her he was close by and walked from his car past the girl’s house to the meeting location and went behind a building.

The deputy made contact with O’Brien and after a brief exchange, took him into custody.

Upon searching his vehicle, officials found handcuffs, vodka, condoms and two cell phones that are believed to have been used in the commission of the crimes.

O’Brien was taken to the Baxter County Detention Center on charges of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in visual or print medium and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. Both are felonies.

He is being held on a $50,000 bond.

His military base was contacted about this incident. Military police have also placed a detainer on O’Brien.
