A 45-year-old man caught over a year ago in a civilian online YouTube sting of child predators made his first appearance in court Monday on felony charges.

George Albert Millan, who was arrested Thursday and was being held on $100,000 bail, appeared Monday on charges of luring a child with the intent to commit a sex crime and meeting a minor to commit lewd conduct, both felonies, in the jail courtroom in Santa Ana. His arraignment was rescheduled for Jan. 27.

Activists behind a YouTube channel called “CreepBustas” made contact with Millan through social media, said Anaheim Police Department Sgt. Shane Carringer.

The site shows video of 11 men showing up for a meeting at a local park with some sticking around to talk about the situation and others running away.

The activists behind the YouTube channel would use teen girls to lure the men to the park, Carringer said. They would later turn over the video and social media communications with law enforcement, Carringer said.

Millan was lured to Twila Reid Park at 3100 W. Orange Ave. on Nov. 23, 2019, Carringer said.
