• Accused child predator arrested in undercover Snapchat operation


    TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police arrested a man accused of making a lewd proposal to a child through social media.

    Officials said they were told about an attempted solicitation of a 14-year-old Osage County child over the holiday break. Detectives then set up an undercover operation to pose as the child on Snapchat.

    Jeremy Jon Batey, 43, of Tahlequah, later tried to solicit the child, who was actually a detective, for a sexual act. He also admitted to the previous attempt during his conversations with the undercover detective.

    Batey was booked into the Cherokee County Jail for lewd proposal to a minor with a hold, pending federal charges.
