Reportedly, a broker told detectives posing as a mother that he wanted to perform sexual acts with her and her 11-year-old daughter.
Lionel Coombs, 51, appeared on Monday at Burwood Local Court, in western Sydney, charged with using the coach service to send / publish / promote child pornography.
The high-profile broker is said to have been deceived by detectives in August to believe that he was talking to the girl's 32-year-old mother, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The police claim that Coombs discussed sexually explicit acts that he wanted to perform with the child and the mother-daughter duo.
The 51-year-old man was arrested on Thursday, September 12 around 9:30 am in a company in Strathfield after inquiring.
Detectives searched a Strathfield house after the arrest where they confiscated various laptops and electronic storage devices.
Coombs was indicted and on Monday granted conditional bail to Burwood Local Court, where he made a brief appearance.
The broker was part of the Richard Matthew Real Estate team that managed the $ 2.4 million mansions of West Tigers legend Robbie Farah in Wareemba, a week before his arrest.
Farah is not involved and is not part of the police investigation.
Coombs is no longer on the Richard Matthew Real Estate website.
The case was postponed to return to Burwood Local Court in December.
