EARLIER: An Albury man has been charged with procuring a child after allegedly discussing sexual acts with a person he thought was a teenage boy, and attempting to meet the teen to have sex.
Police searched a home in Albury about 10am on Sunday after arresting the man at the Casula railway station.
Detectives had been engaging with the man online since December.
The officers had been posing as a 14-year-old boy and said the man “engaged in highly sexualised conversations, including discussing sexual acts he wished to perform on and with the child”.
The 54-year-old man had been in his car when he was arrested.
Police searched his hotel room and his home, and seized a mobile phone, laptop and a storage device, which will all be examined.
The man was refused bail and will appear at court in Liverpool on Monday.
