Pembroke Pines police bust Miami Fire Lt. in online sex sting

A Miami Fire Rescue lieutenant was arrested by Pembroke Pines police Wednesday and accused of soliciting a minor on the internet.

Police say Ramon Marti, 48, answered an online classified ad in late July and began to have “sexually explicit” conversations with what he believed to be a 15-year-old girl. Police say he also sent obscene materials of himself to the girl, who was actually an undercover detective posing as a teenager.

Marti was arrested in Miami-Dade and charged with online solicitation of a minor and providing obscene material to a minor.
