South Fulton police officer arrested for enticing a child

A South Fulton police officer is on the other side of the law accused of enticing a child.

Villa Rica police began investigating last month after receiving a report Matthew Edwards had sent inappropriate text messages to an 11-year-old child.

Edwards was charged with enticing a child for indecent purposes, simple battery, and violation of oath of office.

He was booked into Carroll County jail.
