Charleston Police and Berkeley County deputies arrested John Kyle King, 44, of Lamar Thursday in an internet predator sting.
They charged King with 3 counts of Criminal Solicitation of a Minor, and one count of Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor.

Darlington County deputies seized two computers from King’s home. They were taken to the Charleston Police Department DEU for forensic examination. A third computer was in the King’s possession at the time of his arrest.
Darlington County deputies and Hartsville police conducted surveillance in support of the operation.
Correctional officers at the Charleston County Detention Center say booking reports show King is employed at the Byrnes School in Florence.
