STILLWATER — On July 27, an undercover Stillwater Police Officer, who is attached to the Internet Crimes Against Children task force, began conversing with a male subject who had posted an ad on Craigslist. The male was later identified as 31-year-old Michael Pellegrin of Stillwater.

The undercover officer had responded to Pellegrin’s ad stating he was looking for some fun. The undercover officer advised Pellegrin she was a 14-year-old female. Pellegrin advised the undercover officer that age didn’t bother him and asked to meet with the 14-year-old.

Pellegrin and the undercover officer communicated over the next day and agreed to meet at the 14-year-old girl’s house in Stillwater to engage in sexual activity while her parents were away.

When Pellegrin arrived and approached the residence, he was taken into custody by officers stationed in the area.

Pellegrin was arrested on a complaint of lewd/indecent proposals to a child under 16.
