Cops: Man flew to Colo. to meet girl

NORWICH, Conn. ” A 40-year-old Norwich man is in custody in Colorado, accused of flying to that state to have sex with a 28-year-old mother and her 9-year-old daughter.

Police say Christopher Bates was arrested over the weekend in an Internet sexual predator sting.

Police say the mother he had contact with through the Internet and on the phone was an undercover officer and the child is ficticious.

According to Colorado authorities, Bates planned a nine-day trip to that state to have sex with the woman and ultimately the daughter.

Connecticut state police searched Bates’ Norwich home Monday and evidence that was collected is being analyzed.
