HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York County man was arrested after state prosecutors say he traveled to the Harrisburg area to have sex with someone he believed was a 14-year-old girl.

Malcom Winland, 61, of Dover, posted an advertisement entitled "Do you need allowance?" on Craigslist, then sent a photo of himself standing in a pair of white underwear to an undercover agent posing as the girl, according to the criminal complaint.

During text messages in June and July, Winland arranged to meet the girl for sex, the complaint states.

He was arrested Tuesday when he arrived at the meeting location.

He later admitted to placing the ad, sending the photo, and arranging to meet the girl for sex, the complaint states.

Winland was charged with one count of unlawful contact with a minor, one count of criminal attempt to commit statutory sexual assault and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.

He was placed in Dauphin County Prison on $150,000 bail and has a preliminary hearing scheduled August 8.
