A 61-year-old Arizona man was arrested Sunday and charged with sexual exploitation of a child by the Long County Sheriff’s Department.
According to LCSD Investigator Tom Sollosi, Deputies Codie Futch and Edward Pitts saw a suspicious vehicle parked on a road in the Rye Patch community of Long County about midnight Saturday. When the deputies investigated, they found Ronald Neil Bohlman with a 16-year-old girl. Sollosi said that after further investigation, the deputies discovered evidence in the vehicle that suggested the 61-year-old man, had inappropriate contact with the girl.  
Sollosi said he was then contacted and after interviewing the teen, more evidence was discovered leading to the man being arrested and charged with the felony on Sunday.
Sollosi said Bohlman, who lives in Glendale, Ariz., had flown into Atlanta just days before his arrest, for a computer role-playing conference. After the conference, Sollosi said that the man rented a car and drove to Long County to set up a meeting with the girl.
Tuesday, Bohlman went before Long County Magistrate Brenda Wingate for a bond hear, but was denied bond. Bohlman is currently being held in the Liberty County Jail.
