Florala Police Officer Fired

A Florala police officer who was arrested as part of an online sexual sting operation has been fired.

41-year-old Todd Monroe Spikes of DeFuniak Springs was arrested a week ago after a four-day investigation.

Police say spikes went to a beach community in Florida and planned to have sex with what he thought was a 13-year-old girl, but it was really an undercover cop.

Spikes face felony charges of computer pornography and attempted lewd and lascivious behavior.
