Police said the teen contacted them after Lopez made lewd proposals to the boy on Facebook. Then officers reportedly used the teen's phone to keep messaging Lopez. They said Lopez wanted to meet the boy for sex at the area elementary school, but he found police there instead.

Officers took Lopez into custody, and they said they found marijuana in his car and photos resembling child pornography on his phone.

An arrest report said Lopez told police he was taking diet pills at the time, and he claimed those pills led to the inappropriate thoughts.

Lopez faces complaints of soliciting lewd acts to a minor, marijuana possession and four complaints for possession of child pornography. His bond was set at more than $100,000.
