Meet Adam C. Blazak, 28, of Kokomo, Indiana.
On December 17th, Blazak, a Indiana University student, lured a 19 year-old, Seattle University student, to a hotel room in downtown Seattle, Washington.
Blazak, told police that he always wanted to get a pedophile. To achieve that, he posed online as a 14 year-old girl promising sex. What King County prosecutors say Blakaz did, was a bit different.
The story goes a little like this.
The 19 year-old knocked on the door of the hotel room.
As soon as the man entered, Blazak shouted, ‘Federal agent! Get on the ground! Put your hands behind your back! You’re under arrest!’
Blazak blitzed the man and pinned him to the ground. Slapping handcuffs on the man, he took his wallet, phone and car keys.
Still claiming to be a federal agent, Blazak said he might let the man go if the man paid him.
The man promptly agreed to pay, so the pair drove to a nearby Bank of America and the man withdrew some money, giving Blazak $191.
He also gave Blazak his sunglasses, according to the police records.
The pair then returned to the hotel where Blazak released the man, where the man immediately called the police and reported the robbery.
Once the police arrived, the 19 year-ld claimed that he shown up to the hotel to buy video games.
But when officers found Blazak and arrested him, he told police that he had posted a fake online ad on Craigslist offer up sex with an imaginary 14-year-old girl.
The man claimed he had planned to meet a girl, whom he believed was 18. He admitted to exchanging between 50 and 100 emails with the imaginary girl.
The police (while giddy with laughter) proceeded to then place cuffs on both men and book them into the King County Jail, though charges against the 19-year-old were never filed. At the jail, Blazak spoke to detectives about the incident for a couple minutes before invoking his right to an attorney.
‘Blazak was unusually polite, quiet and timid, almost to the point of being scared,’ a Seattle detective said. ‘His demeanor seemed dramatically different from the behavior he was described as having during the incident.’
Blazak posted $50,000 bond and was released the day after his arrest on December 18.
He has been charged with extortion in the case based on the allegations that he claimed to be a federal agent and accepted money in exchange for freeing the 19-year-old.
I don’t agree with the tactic…
But the thought was brilliant.
