To Catch a [Southern Missouri] Predator


  • / CC BY-ND 2.0
Recently, in the small southern-Missouri town of Crane, a blue mustang was rolling toward a carwash. Its driver - Jeffrey Dale Wommack of Springfield - was expecting to meet up with a 14-year-old girl he'd met in a chat room. Their plan for the day? Cunnilingus.

FAIL! It was a sting. According to the story in the News-Leader, police down there have a grant allowing them to spend more time online nabbing Internet predators (they just enter chat rooms and wait for the "gentlemen" to make the first move, so as to avoid charges of entrapment).

Creepy Part #1: Police found a condom and brass knuckles in Wommack's car.

Creepy Part #2: The guy's handle (a.k.a., online name) was "csncreeper."

Note to predator-hopefuls out there wishing to avoid the cops: keep the word "creep" out of your online name.
