A 26-year-old man was behind bars Friday stemming from an undercover underage sex sting in Huntington Beach.

Ricardo Castro of Lake Forest was booked on suspicion of sending harmful matter with the intent to seduce a minor, communicating with a minor with the intent to engage in lewd acts and arranging a meeting with a minor to engage in sex acts, according to Huntington Beach police Lt. Brian Smith.

Castro agreed to meet a fictitious 13-year-old girl, who was really an undercover detective, in Huntington Beach on Thursday when he was arrested, Smith said.
