Man Arrested in Faulkner Co. Child Sex Sting

FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. - An Independence County man is jailed in Conway after officials say he was caught in a sex sting.

David Ethan Dilks, 51, of Locust Grove, is facing a charge of Internet Stalking of a Child (class Y Felony) after his arrest on Wednesday afternoon.

The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office (FCSO) says undercover investigators began communicating with the suspect on Oct. 2 after finding an online ad allegedly placed by Dilks. 

During communications over the next two days, Dilks is alleged to have made arrangements to engage in illegal sexual contact with an underage male. When Dilks arrived at a predetermined location in Guy, Arkansas he was met by FCSO personnel and placed under arrest. 

The FCSO says when Dilks was arrested he had condoms, a cellular device, a pornographic DVD, and lubricant.
