Fla. man arrested in PTC molestation case

A Florida man was arrested by Peachtree City police on Jan. 12 on charges of child molestation and numerous other offenses involving a 13-year-old girl.

Joseph Lundstrom, 30, of Middleburg, Florida, is charged with two counts of child molestation, two counts of sexual battery, enticing a child for indecent purposes, furnishing obscene materials to a child, computer exploitation of a child, open container, loitering and prowling and suspended license, according to department spokesman Mark Brown. 

Brown said officers on Jan. 12 received information of a possible child molestation incident. 

“The responding patrol officer determined that an offender made contact with the victim through various social media outlets. The social media contacts between the victim and the offender were sexual in nature,” said Brown. 

Brown said the investigation determined that the offender had significant awareness that the victim was only 13 years of age. 

“The offender traveled from Florida to Peachtree City and met the victim on at least two occasions where sexual contact was initiated by the offender,” Brown said. ”Patrol officers set up a third meeting with the offender where he was taken into custody without further incident.” 

Brown said the investigation is continuing and additional charges are expected.

Lundstrom is being held in the Fayette County Jail.
