A Florida man is free on bond after Thomas County investigators say he tried to have sex with a 13 year old boy.

Officials say Conrad Coovert and the teenager met at a Furry Phantom convention in South Carolina.They say Coovert and the boy exchanged sexual texts and videos before he traveled to the boy's home in Thomasville to meet him.The boy's father caught Coovert hiding in the computer room.

"The parents are trying to supervise how much time he spends online and what he's doing online... they got him out of the room and the dogs were still barking and they didn't understand what was going on so they went inside the room and physically saw him hiding," said Lieutenant Tim Watkins.

Coovert is out on bond on a charge of enticing a child for indecent purposes.
