Clovis Undercover Sting Lands One Behind Bars

A Hobbs, New Mexico man is facing charges after police say he tried to meet what he thought was a 13 year old Clovis girl for sex.

The Curry County Sheriff's Department says Douglas Eden was arrested Wednesday at the Clovis mall, where they say he tried to meet the girl. The 13 year old girl was actually a sheriff's deputy conducting an undercover sting.

The deputy says the two chatted online in the days leading up to Eden's arrest. In a sworn statement, the deputy says the chats between him and Eden were often sexual in nature and were very graphic.

Eden was arrested and booked into the Curry County Detention Center.
