A New Hampshire truck driver was arrested Friday for patronizing prostitution with a minor in a sting by Maine State Police at the Cumberland service plaza on the Maine Turnpike.

Luis Castro, 30, of Seabrook had approached a female worker for sex at the plaza earlier in the week and was arrested Friday afternoon when he returned to the plaza in his tractor trailer for a prearranged meeting with what he thought was going to be a teenage girl, Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety said in a news release.

Instead Castro was met by Maine State troopers who arrested him and took him to Cumberland County Jail.
