(Scroll down for video) An airplane pilot was arrested after he stole an airplane and then admitted that he sexually abused a child.
27-year-old Evan Grant stole a small plane from a Las Vegas Airport on Saturday morning, and flew around Sin City for about an hour.
While he was in the air, he spoke to an air traffic controller named Tony. During the conversation, Grant spoke about the crimes he committed.
“I am a pedophile, Tony,” Grant said. “I’ve been since I was 13 years old,” he added.
Nobody knew about the perverted ways of Grant until now, when he confessed.
The perverted pilot said that he did something to his best friend’s son. He then also confessed that he “did something yesterday that he could never take back,” but did not elaborate on what that was.
He also apologized for stealing the airplane in the first place.
Grant finally landed the plane without incident and was arrested. He was charged with grand theft auto and lewdness with a minor, police said.
Grant is now being investigated on charges of fondling two children in the last three weeks. Police believe that Grant planned to commit suicide by crashing the plane.
Grant had easy access to the airport as he often leased airplanes and was a well known pilot.
