School custodian among 11 arrested in child sex sting

Reginal Johnson (Rappahannock Regional Jail)

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A part-time Richmond school custodian was among 11 men who were arrested as part of a sting in which investigators posed as 13-year-old girls online.

Spotsylvania County Sheriff Roger L. Harris said in a news conference Tuesday that the suspects were arrested between October and February after they set up meetings to have sex with the girls.

Authorities say 9 of the men showed up at local locations to pick up a 13-year-old girl, while two others did not arrive but were still arrested.

Among those arrested was 64-year-old Reginal L. Johnson. Grove Christian School says Johnson had been working at the school through a janitorial contracting service, Jo-Lyn Services. A head pastor says Johnson worked part-time in the late afternoon after most students went home. It's unclear whether Johnson has an attorney.
