Roseau man arrested in underage sex sting
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

Police say a 45-year-old Roseau, Minn., man is accused of having sexual online chats with an undercover officer in North Carolina who was posing as a 14-year-old girl.

Roseau Police Chief Ward Anderson said Brian Eugene Seeley and the officer pretending to be a girl arranged to meet the morning of April 27 at the AmericInn in Roseau.

Anderson said local officers waited for Seeley to show that morning and arrested him after he circled the hotel three times on his mountain bike.

Seeley, whose bail was set at $5,000, is in custody, Anderson said.

Calls to the cell phone of Seeley's attorney, Brian Hardwick, went unanswered Tuesday evening.
