Man "swiped right" ... and ended up getting arrested.
Jeremy Adams was interested in a 14-year-old girl named Kelsey on the popular dating site Tinder. He ended up swiping right, which means he wanted to get to know her better. According to a complaint, he talked about how he wanted to make Kelsey his "sex slave." He also added that he "kind of loved that" she was only 14 years old.
It turns out, "Kelsey" wasn't a 14-year-old girl—"she" was actually three teenage boys.
After posing as "Kelsey" and talking with Adams, the three teens agreed to meet him at a Starbucks in Brentwood, California. What ended up happening was not what Adams had pictured: the three boys showed up and confronted Adams about trying to hook up with a 14-year-old girl.
Despite fleeing the scene, Adams was being recorded by the three boys, who chased him around Brentwood. At one point, Adams even fell into a creek during the chase. He also ended up at an elementary school, still being followed by the three-justice seekers.
Ultimately, Adams was caught by police on Tuesday, when they sent his mother a note, inquiring him to pick up certain property at the police station. He was federally charged with child exploitation. Some other police evidence hints that Adams had also met an underage girl out of state whom he may have sexually abused.
Located in East Contra Costa County, California, the three boys who cornered and confronted Adams had created "Kelsey's" Tinder profile in October 2019.
Adams had been on the police's radar since last November, apparently. They claimed they couldn't officially nail him down due to his "ruse IP addresses." With the possibility of Adams having more victims, they no doubt wanted to get him.
And now, thanks to three boys and their fake Tinder account, they do.
