Homeland Security Agent Arrested In Underage Sex Sting

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A Homeland Security inspector was arrested in a sting operation after he allegedly tried to arrange to have sex with an underage girl and her mother, the FBI says.

George Hristovski, 54, was arrested after a Sacramento, California, detective saw an ad in the “Casual Encounters” section of Craigslist in July.

The man who placed the ad was seeking a woman who wanted an older man to teach her daughter about sex, court documents say.

A Placer County detective posed as a mother with a 13-year-old daughter and began emailing the person who posted the ad, who called himself “Greg.” Their correspondence grew increasingly explicit, according to police.

Hristovski, who is married with children, was arrested on federal pornography charges and booked into Sacramento County Jail on Monday.

According to his LinkedIn, Hristovski is an inspector for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and was formerly a behavior detection officer.
