Prosecutors say Gamble contacted the officer over the Internet in October and offered to pay to have sex with the woman’s fictitious 11-year-old and 15-year-old daughters.
Investigators say Gamble arrived in Kansas City on a Greyhound bus April 9. The officer met him at the bus station and took him to a CVS store, where he was arrested when he got out of the car.
Gamble’s public defender was not immediately available for comment.
