COTTONWOOD, AZ (CBS5) -

Two Arizona men are in custody on charges of luring a minor for sex in separate incidents in Cottonwood, sheriff's deputies said.

Ken Roberts, 60, of Tucson was arrested in Cottonwood on Friday on suspicion of engaging in online predator activities.      

In July, Yavapai County sheriff's deputies said Roberts began social networking with a person he believed was an underaged girl. YCSO said he sent text messages with graphic photos and descriptions of sex acts he wanted to perform on the girl.

He also sent photos of lingerie he bought and intended to have the girl model for him, sheriff's investigators said. In late July, he made plans to meet the girl Aug. 2, YCSO said. 

When Roberts arrived, sheriff's deputies met and arrested him.

He was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center and remains in custody on a $50,000 bond.

In a separate case, a 30-year-old Cottonwood man was arrested July 19 in a commercial parking lot on aggravated luring charges.

Kai Keller is accused of sending pornographic images of himself to an underaged girl he met on social networking site. He also described specific sex acts he wanted to engage in with the minor, sheriff's deputies said.

He suggested a place in Cottonwood where they could meet to have sex, sheriff's investigators said. A deputy met and took him into custody.

Keller was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center and remains in-custody on a $50,000 bond.
