DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A Central Florida man was arrested after police say he posted an online ad and sought sex with two teenage girls.

Vance D. Taylor, 29, of Daytona Beach, was arrested on charges of using a computer to solicit a parent/guardian for consent, traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child and using a two-way communication device to commit a felony.

According to police, Taylor posted the ad on Nov. 21. The online ad said, "Impregnate your daughter or sister or wife."

"His ad was very descriptive. It had some elicit pictures in it and his title was, looking to impregnate somebody's daughter," Daytona Beach Police Sgt. Tim Ehrenkaufer said.

An undercover officer responded to the ad, saying she had two daughters, 13 and 14, and asked whether they were too young, according to police. Taylor asked what the girls liked to do sexually, according to police.

 "He sent several nude photos of himself and made several comments about sexually explicit things that he wanted to do," Ehrenkaufer said.

A meeting was arranged, and police arrested Taylor, who said he also intended to kill the children’s mother and take out his “life frustrations” on her, according to authorities.

Police said Taylor asked to be charged with traveling to commit a homicide instead of a sexual offense because it would reflect better on him. Authorities also said Taylor had a knife in his possession.

"He's trying to become a member of the Outlaw motorcycle gang  and he knew this would not fly with them," Ehrekaufer said.

Taylor was booked in the Volusia County Branch Jail, where he was being held without bond.

Taylor lives with his grandparents on South Peninsula Drive, they declined to comment.
