A Northern California man who claims to have worked for the Transportation Security Administration was hit with federal child pornography charges after an undercover sting reportedly caught him trying to arrange sex with a mother and her 13-year-old daughter via Craigslist.

Suspect George Hristovski's LinkedIn profile claims he is currently employed as an "Inspector" at the US Department of Homeland Security, and previously a TSA "Behavior Detection Officer."

George Hristovski, a 54-year-old resident of Elverta north of Sacramento, who says on LinkedIn that he joined the TSA in 2008, was arrested Monday after FBI agents raided his home. He faces charges of attempted production of child pornography and attempted enticement of a minor. According to court records, an undercover investigator with the Placer County Sheriff's Department found an ad in Craigslist's "Casual Encounters" section last month that sought a mother-daughter tandem for sex.

The FBI said that at one point during their investigation, Hristovski wrote, "I am trying to weed out cops, men pretending to be women and just want pics and stories." When caught, the suspect claims he was trying to sting the stingers, and planned to alert law enforcement if the "mother" actually sent the sexually explicit photos he was promised.

Gross.
