Officer arrested: Secret Service Officer Arrested, A Delaware investigation has resulted in the arrest of a uniformed Secret Service officer accused of sending a picture of his genitals to someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl, according to court documents. Some of the communication happened while he was on duty at the White House, authorities said.
Lee Robert Moore, 37, of Church Hill, Maryland, was chatting on a cellphone social media app with an undercover Delaware State Police detective when he sent the naked photo and requested to meet, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Delaware.
Moore was charged in federal court with attempted transfer of obscene material to a minor, two counts of solicitation of a minor for sex and one count of obscenity material provided to a minor in state court. He is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna.
Officials in Delaware would not comment on the charges and referred to the criminal complaints.
The complaints obtained by The News Journal show that the investigation began in August when a Delaware State Police detective with the state Child Predator Task Force was on the social media app Meet24 under a profile for a 14-year-old girl from Delaware.
A user, named “Rob,” contacted the girl and began chatting with her about what clothes she liked to wear to bed, the complaint said. The detective asked Moore to chat on another app, called Kik, and the two exchanged usernames.
“[Lee Robert] Moore soon moved the chats sexual. He stated he wanted to travel to Delaware and meet in person for sex. Moore made it clear that he knew I was a 14 yr old girl.”

The Delaware Department of Justice then issued subpoenas to Kik for the IP address related to Moore’s profile, the complaint said. The IP address was linked to Moore and his wife in Maryland.
In the following days, the father of two said he wanted to meet with the girl near the Dover Air Force Base and requested that she wear a skirt when they do so, the complaint said. The two continued to chat, turning the conversation to sex, and exchanged photos, according to the complaint.
“Moore soon moved the chats sexual,” Delaware State Police Detective Kevin McKay wrote in the state’s affidavit describing the investigation. “He stated he wanted to travel to Delaware and meet in person for sex. Moore made it clear that he knew I was a 14 yr old girl.”
After Moore became suspicious, a female detective stepped in to chat with him and continued exchanging photos and videos. Some of the chats occurred while he was in his work break room or checking identifications at a building entrance, the complaint said. In one instance, he wrote that “work sucks today,” according to the court document.
In a Sept. 24 video, Moore can be seen in “what appears to be a small room wearing what appears to be a tactical vest and a baseball-style hat with sunglasses” and stated in the chat “that he was on break and had to go relieve someone,” according to the complaint.
