An elementary school principal has been arrested after he was reportedly caught attempting to lure teenage girls to 'skinny dipping' parties.

Karl Waggoner (59) was arrested Tuesday ollowing an investigation by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.

He is now acing charges of luring a minor for sexual exploitation and aggravated luring/misrepresenting his age after he admitted to posting invitations to the proposed "pool party" online, the New York Post reports.

“Our sex crimes detective conducted an undercover investigation, posing as a 14-year-old girl, after spotting one of Waggoner’s ads,” officials said in a press release.

“During the course of the investigation, Waggoner engaged in sexually inappropriate conversations, discussed engaging in sexual acts with our undercover detective and provide sexually explicit photos.”

“Even up until this weekend, Mr. Waggoner was posting ads online soliciting young girls for sex,” Lamb said.

The educator had just been appointed as principal of an elementary school in Arizona last July, with term starting this week.
