Colonie police say a Clifton Park man is under arrest after a two-month long investigation.
They say 47-year-old Gary Ryan attempted to engage a 14-year-old boy in conversation online about sexual contact.
Police say there were three different times Ryan messaged undercover investigators of the Colonie Police Department through social media, believing he was communicating with a 14-year-old boy.
They say sexually explicit photos were sent.
Police say Ryan is a registered Level 1 sex offender, due to a previous conviction.
