MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. — Police have arrested a Germantown man they conducted a sting operation on after they found him on Craigslist looking for ‘a local young lady’.

Asil Din, 44, was contacted by a female police officer who posed as a 15-year-old. He responded, and acknowledged that he knew she was 15. He said her age concerned him, but continued to contact her and set up a series of meetings for sex where she would pay him $100 for each encounter.

They arranged to meet at the Rockville Metro Station after police had confirmed his identity. He was arrested and taken into custody.

Din is an Amateur Athletic Association (AAU) youth boys basketball coach. If anyone has concerns about Din’s inappropriate association with a minor, contact Vice and Intelligence detectives at 240-773-5958.
