YouTubers Lead Egg Harbor Township Police To Alleged Child Bait In New Jersey

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, NJ — A pair of YouTubers led police in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, to suspected child decoy, authorities say.

Police were called to a boat dock at Graef’s Boat Yard around 5:46pm on Sunday in an attempt to lure a child.

While officers were on the scene, they were met by two people who police say run a YouTube channel to catch child predators.

The video inserted above is from a previous report.

According to Egg Harbor Township Police Department, the duo create accounts on dating websites posing as young girls.

Police say the creators communicated online and via text message with 57-year-old Philadelphia native Roger Tomes.

They told police Tomes believed he was meeting a 15-year-old girl on his boat to have sex.

After the police made inquiries, they arrested Tomes and charged him with luring.

If convicted, Tomes faces a fine of up to $150,000 and five to 10 years in prison.
