Police in Southeast Wisconsin put a Crivitz man behind bars, saying he tried to have sex with someone he thought was 15 years old.

Waukesha Police say James Swanson owned a photography business and was messaging an undercover officer he thought was a girl to try to take explicit pictures of her. They arrested the 73-year-old on Feb. 15 when detectives say he set up a meeting with an undercover officer.

He was charged Feb. 16 in Waukesha County with using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.

Swanson was the assistant fire chief of the Middle Inlet Fire Department, a volunteer department in Marinette County, but investigators say he recently retired. Middle Inlet is north of Crivitz.
