A Hereford Township man was one of three people apprehended in an Internet child predator sting operated by the Pennsylvania Attorney general's office.
John T. Bossert Jr., 37, of the 900 block of Gravel Pike, was arrested Friday and accused of having sexually explicit online conversations with an investigator posing as a 13-year-old girl.
Bossert was arrested at home by state police and charged with unlawful contact with a minor and related offenses. He was committed to Berks County Prison in lieu of $25,000 bail after arraignment before District Judge Michael G. Hartman. He later posted bail.
Also arrested in the sting were Randy L. Hart, 40, of Mount Carmel, Northumberland County, and Manpreet S. Nibber, 49, Burtonsville, Md.
