A man from Connecticut was arrested in Greeley after he drove 1,900 miles to allegedly have sex with a mother and her 10- and 14-year-old daughters.

The family wasn't real, it was a creation of a Homeland Security Investigations agent who was targeting individuals using a website to sexually exploit children, officials said.

Jason Tremblay, age 28, was arrested last week on suspicion of aggravated sexual abuse with children. He was indicted by a federal Grand Jury Tuesday.

Prosecutors said Tremblay started emailing the mom persona last November asking if she was “active with your girls.” The email led to chats and other communications.

"On January 6, 2016, the undercover agent received an image that then target, now defendant Tremblay claimed to be himself," prosecutors said. "In return, the special agent sent images that she identified as her with her two minor daughters."

The two allegedly arranged a meeting and Tremblay drove out last week. He was arrested February 4.

He's been released on $50,000 bond.
