52-year-old Man Arrested in Predator Sting


Lexington deputies arrested a 52-year-old Elgin man after they say he solicited sex from what he believed to be a 12-year-old girl over the Internet.

Attorney General Henry McMaster announced the arrest of 52-year-old James Kenneth Capps of 1211 Surrey Lane in Elgin Tuesday.

Capps is charged with one count of criminal solicitation of a minor, and one count of attempted dissemination of obscene material to a minor.

An arrest warrant says Capps tried to solicit sex to an undercover Lexington deputy posing as a 12-year-old girl online on October 4th. Deputies executed a search warrant at Capps’ house and seized three computers, a web camera and other computer related items.

McMaster says Capps’s arrest marks the 103rd person arrested by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that includes the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
