40-year-old Kansas City resident Christopher Lanning was arrested in our neck of the woods yesterday after driving almost non-stop from the Sunflower State under the assumption he was to meet a teenage girl he could sex. Said girl was a figment of the Longwood Police Department, a tool used by authorities to trap and capture online predators. Lanning, having no apparent suspicions about a 14-year-old in Florida who wanted to meet him for sex at a gas station, gunned it from Jayhawk central (over 1,200 miles away) and took virtually no driving breaks. Authorities say the vehicle Lanning piloted into the Shell at 100 Dog Track Road on Tuesday "reeked of human waste"; at least one bottle of urine was found inside the car during his arrest.

"I made a major mistake in judgment," Lanning later remarked, most likely referring to the out-of-state statutory rape he planned to commit and not the fact he forgot to just wear a diaper.
