Baltimore County Police have charged an Essex man with trying to solicit a minor for sex.

On November 25, an undercover Baltimore County Police detective posted an ad on an internet site. The detective received a response to the ad from a subject that included an image of a naked man.

On December 15, the undercover detective responded back to the subject, posing a 13-year-old girl, and began on-line communication with him. During on-line communications, the subject talked about wanting to have sex and perform sexual acts.

A meeting was arranged on December 22 at a location in Baltimore County. The subject thought was going to pick a 13-year-old girl up and take her to his house. When he arrived at the location, police were waiting for him; and took him into custody without incident.

The subject has been identified as 47-year-old John William Ransier of the 500 block of Stemmers Run Road 21221. He has been charged with sexual solicitation of a minor, attempted third degree sex offense, and attempted second degree rape. Ransier is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

At 2:26 a.m. this morning, the Baltimore County Fire Department responded to a home in the 3400 block of McShane Way 21222 for a report of a structure fire. When they arrived on the scene, they found an adult female in front of the location unconscious and there was light smoke inside the home.

The 73-year-old woman found in front of the home was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in critical but stable condition. Her current condition is unknown. Three other people were treated at an area hospital for smoke inhalation and released.

The fire in the home was brought under control at 3:02 a.m. There were no injuries to any firefighters.

There were 13 pieces of Baltimore County Fire Department equipment dispatched to the scene.

Baltimore County Fire Investigators are investigating this incident. It appears that unattended candles caused the fire.

The Baltimore County Police Department’s 140th Recruit class graduation will take place Tuesday, December 23, at 7:30 p.m. The ceremony will take place at Notre Dame Preparatory School, 815 Hampton Lane, Towson 21286.
