LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) -- Loveland police have arrested two people who they say tried to lure pedophiles with children to a secluded spot so they could rob the pedophiles and kidnap the kids.

Police said Monday that 20-year-old Dustin Canup and 18-year-old Sareena Morrison, both of Loveland, face charges including conspiracy to commit kidnapping, aggravated robbery and extortion.

KMGH-TV in Denver reports that an arrest affidavit says the two are accused of posting messages on a sex website and targeting men who agreed to bring a child to a motel for sex acts. The couple allegedly told investigators their plan was to rob or extort money from the men who responded and to raise the child as their own.
