Sgt. Michael Gerard Stavris II, (Bunnell Police Deptartment)

A Florida police sergeant has been suspended without pay and faces several criminal charges after an investigation found that he had been posing as a 16-year-old girl on Facebook in order to solicit boys for sex, The Florida Times-Union is reporting.

The investigation into 30-year-old Sgt. Michael Gerard Stavris II of the Bunnell Police Department began in December after an alleged victim complained to the police. Starvis -- who measures in at 6'3" and 400 pounds -- is accused of using the fake profile from November 2012 to November 2013 and on that page he had about 40 males under the age of 18 added as friends, many of whom attend Flagler Palm Coast High School, according to the arrest affidavit.

Investigators say Starvis would send photos of female breasts so the teens would, in return, send nude pictures of themselves. In several cases, police say Starvis would try to bribe the boys with oral sex if they would send pictures of themselves or send pictures of other teen girls naked, according to the affidavit.

Police arrested Starvis on Tuesday and charged him with with two counts of computer pornography and child exploitation prevention act and one count of criminal use of personal identification information.
