police radios

Front Royal Police Department (FRPD) announced the arrest of an adult attempting to solicit a minor.

The investigation began Nov. 9 and on Wed. Nov. 22 the arrest of Avery Wood of Charlottesville was made.

A proactive undercover investigation found Wood began unsolicited communications with a person he believed to be a 15-year-old female but in reality was an undercover Officer.

Some of the unsolicited material sent by Wood was Child Sexual Abuse Materials.

A designated meeting place was arranged within Front Royal and Wood traveled to the location to meet the detective posing as the female for lascivious intent.

The 53-year-old Wood was arrested and taken to the Regional Jail where he was ordered to be held without bond until his December 15 court date.

Wood is facing a 9 a.m. trail in Warren County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

Anyone with any information in this or any case involving the solicitation or exploitation of any minor should contact the FRPD.

Call Detective M.R. Ramey at 540-636-2208 or email mramey@frontroyalva.com.

The FRPD is an active member of the Virginia DC Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

The week long campaign wrapped up Sat. Nov. 19 at the Royal Plaza Shopping Center.

The River 953 Fox Sports Radio 1450 owner and President Andrew Shearer by email said he is humbled by the community support of the yearly campaign.
