While on duty, a police detective was arrested for attempting to meet a 13-year-old girl for sex after driving 75 miles to see her.

A Met Police detective has been sentenced to prison for attempting to have sex with a 13-year-old girl while on duty.

DC Francois Olwage, 52, allegedly drove 75 kilometers to meet “Caitlin” – who turned out to be an undercover officer after being groomed online.

When police caught him in a McDonald’s in Basingstoke, Hampshire, they discovered two condoms, a bottle of lubricant, and a packet of Tadalafil erectile dysfunction tablets in his bag.

He was ready to buy a McFlurry for her when he discovered a package of Ferrero Rocher chocolates, which he assumed was a present for the “chick.”

Paedo Olwage was found guilty of three child sex charges earlier this month and was sentenced to five and a half years in prison today.

When the officer left his home in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in October, he was on duty and working from home.

During two weeks of graphic communications, the Met Police counter-terrorism officer traveled to meet the “female” after outlining sex acts he intended to perform on her.

The undercover officer first referred to the girl as Smile Bear on the Lycos online chat site before referring to her as Caitlin on Whatsapp.

Olwage, a 19-year police officer, had reserved a hotel room for the gathering.

He was convicted guilty of three child sex offenses at Winchester Crown Court.

Last year, his arrest was the result of a thorough investigation by Hertfordshire Police, according to Met Detective Chief Superintendent Donna Smith.

Smile Bear was an adult “acting out a fantasy,” according to Olwage, who told the jury he “never believed” she was a 13-year-old girl.

In addition, the sex offender denied having any sexual interest in children.

He was found guilty of attempting to engage in sexual conduct with a minor, attempting to induce or instigate a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual behavior, and attempting to meet a girl under the age of 16 after grooming.

When the trial began, he admitted to abusing his police powers and privileges in order to obtain the “advantage of sexual gratification.”

The jury was instructed by Judge Jane Miller QC to find him not guilty of organising or aiding the commission of a child sex crime.
