Tampa man accused of soliciting minor for sex

TAMPA — A 42-year-old man accused of soliciting and traveling to meet a minor was arrested Monday night by state officials.

Timothy William Schroyer of Tampa made several solicitations, on the phone and online, to have sex with a 10-year-old girl, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said.

He made arrangements to meet the girl and her mother — a setup by investigators — in a parking lot on Nebraska Avenue, the agency said.

Just before midnight Monday, FDLE agents arrested Schroyer. Investigators also searched his home at 4702 N 10th St. where they said they found two computers that will be analyzed.

Schroyer faces two counts of online solicitation of a parent to have sex with a child and one count of traveling to meet a minor for sex.

In his LinkedIn and Facebook accounts, Schroyer says he is a filmmaker, a retired U.S. paratrooper and a board member of the Florida Motion Picture & Television Association's Tampa Bay chapter. The association confirmed he was a member.

He was being held Tuesday in the Hillsborough County Jail on $22,500 bail.
