85-year-old Florida man, Hellmuth Kolb, arrested for trying to buy 8-year-old girl for $100,000

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Florida man arrested for trying to buy 8-year-old girl for $100,000. 

Hellmuth Kolb, 85, approached the child’s mom at a Winn Dixie in Port Orange Thursday and made the indecent proposal, according to the Port Orange Police Department.

Kolb was on probation and was banned from having contact with children after trying to buy a different child in Walmart in 2018, according to WESH-TV.

Lauren Benning told the station she thought Kolb was just a lonely old man when he approached her and her daughter.

“He just came up and he started making comments about how pretty she was and how good her dancing was and how he could never have children and he wanted children,” Benning reportedly said.

Police also said that Klob, who is a registered sex offender, is on probation for "similar issues," and is not allowed to have any contact with minor children.

"Mr. Kolb should have simply stuck to just grocery shopping. Thanks to our SIU, Mr. Kolb did receive a complimentary ride in one of our air-conditioned Police cars, and a free stay at Hotel 92 [Volusia County Branch Jail]," police said in the Facebook post.

Kolb at the time reportedly started bidding on an 8-year-old girl who was sitting with her mother on a bench and offered the mother the large sum of cash in exchange for her child.

Police said at the time that the mother refused and tried to leave with her daughter, but Kolb grabbed the girl's arm and kissed her wrist. He was sentenced to five years probation after being convicted for battery and false imprisonment.
