2 Okmulgee men arrested after meeting up with 15-year-old boy for sex

LONGTOWN, Okla. - Two Okmulgee men were arrested early Sunday morning after meeting a 15-year-old boy for sex, Pittsburg County Undersheriff Richard Bedford said.

Deputies patrolling the Longtown area pulled over Dwight Beard, 48, and Justin Pollard, 40, both from Okmulgee, around 2:45 a.m. 

Bedford said a 15-year-old boy was in the front seat acting nervous.

The two men and the boy met through an iPhone app called "Jack'd," which helps men find relationships, Bedford said.

Nude photos had been exchanged between the boy and the two men prior to their meeting, Bedford said.

Beard and Pollard were taken to the Pittsburg County jail on complaints of lewd and indecent proposal to a minor.

The boy was not harmed.
