Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrest 13 adult men with solicitation of a minor
“Every one of these suspects thought they were meeting a 13 to 15-year-old boy or girl,” says Harris County Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen. “It doesn’t get sicker than that.”
A local undercover operation involving sex, the internet and social media has led to the arrest of 13 adult men, all of whom thought they were hooking up with children.
The undercover cops posed as minors on various online and social media apps in order to chat-up the adults suspected of sexually exploiting children. The men believed they were soliciting sex or sex-related acts.
This was a more than 30-hour sting operation last month and involved 50 members of law enforcement. The Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force led the initiative in conjunction with the constable`s office and HPD.
