Ada man, 21, arrested in Internet sex sting

LIMA, Ohio — The Lima Police Department's PACE Unit arrested an Ada, Ohio, man yesterday after he attempted to meet with what he thought were two young girls for sex.

Matthew Odenweller, Jr., 21, was arrested about 3:20 p.m. at an east Lima location for importuning.

Mr. Odenweller was attempting to meet with a 14-year-old girl and her 13-year-old sister. Mr. Odenweller is accused of making two solicitations over the Internet, believing he was talking to both girls. Instead, he was conversing with a Lima police officer, police said.

Mr. Odenweller is in the Allen County jail pending arraignment today in Lima Municipal Court.
