Marcus Demon Watkins, 44 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he engaged in online conversations of a sexual nature with someone he thought to be under the age of 16 years.

Reports said that while speaking with the child, he told them that he would bring them marijuana when they would meet up for sexual relations.

He was taken into custody at the arranged location and was found with marijuana.

Watkins is charged with child molestation, use of a computer to solicit a child to commit a felony, obscene internet contact with a child, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
