21-year-old Micah Landry of Erath now sits behind bars after La. State Police detectives say he tried to met an undercover officer for sex.

Spokesperson Trooper Stephen Hammons says Landry thought he was meeting a juvenile female, allegedly arranging the meeting in Lafayette after sending several sexually explicit photos to the undercover officers over a four month period.

When Landry arrived, detectives say they recovered a stolen handgun that Landry had in his possession.

Landry has been booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center for possession of a stolen firearm, computer aided solicitation of a minor and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Authorities continue to investigate.
