A Schertz man is facing a charge of online solicitation of a minor.

San Antonio police arrested Christopher Hintz, 45, Wednesday afternoon, but records show he was released on bond later that night.

According to jail booking records, Hintz was arrested at the San Antonio Police Department’s headquarters on W. Nueva Street.

Detectives said he was communicating with someone online whom he thought was younger than 15, and soliciting sex.

Hintz reportedly is a member of the U. S. military, but it was not immediately clear which branch he belongs to.
