PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A tip led to the arrest of a 22-year-old Phoenix man on bestiality charges after he allegedly placed a Craigslist ad seeking a horse, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said. 

Donald Waelde was taken into custody Tuesday night in the Anthem area by an MCSO undercover detective, who brought along an MCSO Mounted Posse horse as a prop, investigators said.

According to MCSO, Waelde placed an ad on Craigslist's missed connections section in early April stating, "I want to play with a horse. Simple as that. If you have a horse and I can have access to it ... I will do something in return."

A visitor to Craigslist was so disgusted by the ad that he contacted MCSO, authorities said. 

In an undercover investigation, sheriff's deputies contacted Waedle, who described the sex act he wished to perform. He agreed to meet the undercover detective.

After he was arrested, a search warrant was served on his home. 

MCSO said it was the fourth bestiality case conducted by the sheriff's office since 2011.
