BELLEVUE, Nebraska — A Lincoln sex offender has been arrested after authorities say he attempted to entice a Bellevue boy.

The Bellevue Police Department said Thursday that 48-year-old Robert John Heist II is charged with child enticement by an electronic communication device.

Police arrested Heist following a report about a potential child enticement crime last month involving an internet dating site. Undercover communication revealed Heist's identity and location.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Heist who could comment on the charges. If convicted, Heist faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

The Omaha World-Herald reports ( ) that Heist is a lifetime registered sex offender as a result of convictions in California.
