The Lebanon Police Department has been conducting an investigation through a social media provider targeting individuals who are looking to victimize children.
Lebanon Police Officers engaged in a conversation via social media with two males who were later identified as Peter Florucci, age 51, of Randolph, Vermont and Edward Vasquez, age 37, of Lawrence, Massachusetts.
This investigation led to Peter Florucci arriving at a local park to meet a person who he thought was a juvenile for sexual acts on December 5, 2017 and Edward Vasquez arrived at a parking lot of a local shopping center to meet a person who he thought was a juvenile for sexual acts on December 6, 2017.
Peter Florucci and Edward Vasquez were each taken into custody. Both were charged with Certain Uses of Computer Services Prohibited and Attempted Felonious Sexual Assault, both Class B Felonies. Their bail was set at $20,000 cash each and they were transported to the Grafton County House of Corrections pending arraignment in the Grafton County Superior Court on December 6, 2017.
