COLONIE – A 56-year-old Castleton on the Hudson man showed up at a Latham apartment complex on Friday, April 13, thinking he was meeting a 13-year-old girl for a sexual encounter.
Instead, Steven Frazee was met by investigators with the Colonie Police Department’s Computer Crimes Unit and placed under arrest.
According to Lt. Robert Winn, Frazee sent text messages to undercover investigators on three dates in February and March. He thought he was communicating with a 13-year-old girl, and the contact was of a sexual nature and attempts to meet for sex.
A meeting was scheduled and Frazee was arrested without incident at 3:24 p.m.
A search warrant was executed on the Cumberland Farms store manager’s vehicle – a 2017 Mazda Suburban – and his residence. Digital media devices were seized for forensic examination.
There are no known victims and the investigation did not reveal any known questionable access to children. But, due to the nature of the charges, anyone who believes they may be a victim, or has information about any victims, is urged to contact Colonie police at 518-783-2744.
Frazee is charged with three felonies of attempted dissemination of indecent material to a minor and was sent to the Albany County jail pending arraignment.
