On December 18th, 2013 at 3:45pm, the Detective division of the Blooming Grove Police Department arrested an 18 year old male from Blooming Grove. Due to his age and ability to obtain youthful offender status, we can't release his name. The 18 year old male was arrested after a Police Investigation involving conversations that he was having with an 11 year old female from Nebraska where he was posing as a 13 year old male.
