Man charged after attempted get-together
A 27-year old Rice Lake man was taken into custody on a number of child sex charges following an undercover sting in which an officer pretended to be a 15 year old girl. On Wednesday, February 17 the defendant, Kevin J. Blomberg, Rice Lake, was added as a social media friend by the officer. Blomberg had been a past friend of the account but his previous account had been deleted due to violations of the user agreement. Through the day the two engaged in an exchange of conversation that ultimately revolved around Blomberg sending illicit photos of himself and planning to get together later that morning.
