TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa man suspected of soliciting an underage girl on the Internet has been arrested in Missouri.

Tulsa police say 29-year-old Robert Dean Graef was arrested Friday by police in Carthage.

They say Graef traveled to Missouri to meet with an undercover officer who was posing as a 13-year-old girl.

Police say Graef had duct tape and a loaded pistol at the time of his arrest.

Tulsa police also served a search warrant on Graef's Tulsa home and recovered his computer and other evidence that will be forwarded to authorities in Missouri to help with their prosecution.
