Man charged with sexual exploitation of a child

LUDOWICI, GA (WTOC) - A 61-year-old Arizona man was arrested and charged Sunday night with sexual exploitation of a child.

It began when Long County deputies responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle near the Rye Patch community in Ludowici.

They found Ronald Bohlman in the car with a 16-year-old girl and grew suspicious. Investigators were contacted and Bohlman was arrested.

The Long County sheriff's department said Bohlman made plans online to meet the girl with an interest in sexual activity. He then flew to Georgia to meet her, all the way from Arizona.

Police said Bohlman is also a government contractor in the area on business.

He is being held in Long County Jail and more charges may follow.
