LILBURN – On Nov. 20 at approximately 8:40 p.m., Wesley Baylock Williams, 52, of Alpharetta was arrested by the Lilburn Police Department as part of a Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force operation.


A Lilburn police investigator had been communicating with Williams for approximately two weeks over the internet. Williams believed that he was communicating with a 14-year-old female. The conversations did include sexually explicit language and at least one nude photograph.
 
Williams arranged to meet the girl near her residence, which he was told was within the city limits of Lilburn. When Williams arrived to pick up the girl, he was taken into custody without incident.
 
Lilburn Police Chief Bruce Hedley has steadfastly encouraged his investigators to aggressively seek out and prosecute anyone who would endanger a child in this manner. “The Lilburn Police Department is a firm supporter of the GBI’s Internet Crime Against Children Task Force,” Chief Hedley said.
