Port Charlotte, FL (July 30, 2019) – Police confirmed that 58-year-old Bret Lee was arrested after he sought oral sex from underage boys and undercover deputies found out through a sting.
Deputies claim that Lee randomly texted a phone number that belonged to a teenager in Charlotte County. He then sent the teenager explicit messages and asked him if he wanted to meet up for oral sex.
However, luckily enough, the ‘teenager’ was actually Port Charlotte deputies. Lee was under the impression that he would be meeting up with two teenage boys for oral sex and went to a Port Charlotte McDonald’s. He became impatient and drove about a mile and a half up the road, where deputies eventually arrested him.
Lee was arrested on two counts of using a computer to seduce a child and two counts of traveling to meet a minor. He is now in jail on a $130,000 bond.
