UTAH COUNTY — A law enforcement officer was arrested Friday night on suspicion of enticing a teenage girl for sexual activity.
Court documents state that 55-year-old Victor Smith, a resident of Eagle Mountain, "holds a position of trust within the community as a certified peace officer" but did not specify what agency he worked for.
Smith was arrested on one 2nd-degree felony count of enticing a minor by internet or text and is being held in the Utah County Jail without bail.
Police say last week, Smith was in communication with someone who he thought was a 13-year-old girl and proposed that they perform sexual activities together.
The arresting officer requested that Smith be denied bail due to having access to children and sensitive information. A judge approved the request Saturday morning.
