NJ Man Charged in VA Online Predator Sting

Posted on: August 13, 2016

A. Gerretz Jr, 63 of Estell Manor, has been arrested in an online predator sting, according to the Stafford County Sherri’s office. Gerretz was caught by a Stafford sheriff’s detective who was posing as a 14-year-old girl online and communicated over several months beginning in April 2015. The communications often turned sexual in nature.

During the communications, Garretz allegedly displayed his face to the detective and “unknowingly provided other information that assisted in identifying him,” according to a release from the sheriff’s office.

With the assistance of New Jersey State Police, Garretz was identified and arrested.
