EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, New Jersey -- A pair of YouTubers led police in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey to a child luring suspect, authorities say.
Police were called to a boat slip at Graef's Boat Yard around 5:46 p.m. Sunday for the report of an attempted luring of a child.
Once on the scene, officers were met by two people who police say run a YouTube channel to catch child predators.

According to Egg Harbor Township police, the duo creates accounts on dating websites posing as young girls.
