Tabor is accused of messaging a 12-year-old girl “via two different fake Instagram accounts” offering to engage in sexual activity with her, according to court records.

The girl agreed to meet Tabor at her house after allegedly receiving the messages and that’s where police were waiting to arrest him, records show.

“He was subsequently interviewed, at which time he admitted to operating the Instagram accounts with the purpose of talking to (the girl) and to sending the messages to her, knowing she was likely only 12 years old,” a detective wrote in court documents.

Tabor appeared in Montgomery County Municipal Court earlier this week, where his bond was set at $25,000, records show.

Tabor remained in the Montgomery County Jail Wednesday.
