Eau Claire County (WQOW) - A 30-year-old Boyceville man is charged in Eau Claire County with arranging to meet a 15-year-old girl for sex. Turns out, the girl was actually an undercover officer. 

According to the criminal complaint, Brandon Bien responded to a Craigslist ad posted by the officer in the personal section, with the officer posing as a minor.

The two exchanged text messages and agreed to meet at a Kwik Trip in Eau Claire. Bien repeatedly asked if she was a cop.

When he was arrested, police found lingerie in his truck, and a box of condoms in his jacket pocket. 

Bien told police he just wanted to smoke pot with the girl, and the lingerie and condoms were for his girlfriend. 

He is due back in court January 16 for a preliminary hearing.
