A Hidalgo County jailer is behind bars after being arrested in as part of an undercover on-line solicitation of a minor investigation.
McAllen police arrested 24-year-old Rolan Rey Mata early Friday morning.
Investigators told Action 4 News that McAllen police were participating in an undercover investigation to identify on-line cyber predators.
An undercover officer created a fake profile of a 14-year-old girl on a social media network website.
The Edinburg man allegedly contacted the girl's profile and tried to arrange a meeting for a sexual encounter.
The McAllen Monitor reported that Mata works as a detention officer at the Hidalgo Couty Jail.
Mata appeared before a McAllen Municipal Court judge on Friday morning where he was issued a $75,000 bond.
