Chicago Police arrested 38 offenders and shut down two gang-controlled drug markets following two unrelated investigations, officials said.
The online news editor for an Annapolis newspaper has been charged with soliciting sex from someone he thought was an adolescent girl.
George "Nick" Lundskow, the interactive media editor for The Capital, was arrested and charged with soliciting sex from a minor in Pennsylvania Friday.
Police said Lundskow used an Internet chat room to try and arrange sex with someone whom he thought was a 14-year-old girl, but was actually an undercover special agent. Authorities accuse Lundskow of using a webcam to send pictures exposing himself.
A report by The Capital said that Lundskow had been at the paper since 1986 and had worked as a photographer, page designer, and Internet director before being named interactive media editor in May 2008.
The paper's Editor, Steve Gunn, called the charges serious, but had no further comment on the matter.
