PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A 21-year-old Surprise man is in custody on suspicion of luring a girl under 15 for sex, police said.

Michael Synder was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

Synder allegedly posted a Craigslist ad promising to pay $100 for a "very young girl" to have sex with him, according to a court document.

When a girl responded, police said Synder began exchanging emails with her and agreed to meet her at a specific location, authorities said.

When he arrived at that location, police took him into custody. Synder had withdrawn $100 from a convenience store ATM and purchased a pack of condoms, according to a probable cause statement.

Synder was booked into jail on one count of luring a minor for sex, one count of child prostitution and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.
