Putnam County deputies arrested a man who they say tried to meet a child for sex.

An investigation into 27-year-old Joseph Stream began last month when the parents of a 16-year-old Putnam County girl realized Stream was soliciting their daughter for sex.

Investigators continued to message Stream pretending to be the 16-year-old.

Yesterday he drove from Palm Coast to Palatka to meet the girl and met sheriff's deputies instead.

Stream is being held in the Putnam County Jail on charges of obscene communication charges.
