Thomas Benjamin Taylor, 26 of Calhoun, was arrested in Rome after reports said he engaged in online conversations of a sexual nature with someone he thought to be under the age of 16 years-old.

Police said that Taylor described sex acts he wished to perform with the child before agreeing to meet up in Rome to engage in the acts.

Authorities then meet up with Taylor at the arranged location where he was found with marijuana that was intended for the child.

Taylor is charged with aggravated child molestation, obscene internet contact with a child, use of a computer to solicit a child to commit a felony, and two counts purchase and distribution of marijuana.
