Offering cash, candy and video games for sex with a seven and 11 year old landed 9 men in jail in Washington State last night.
Operation Underground Railroad partnered with the Washington State Patrol Missing and Exploited children’s Task Force on this particular mission.
One suspect who showed up to meet the girls, had a loaded 9mm handgun, knives, four throwing stars, a police baton, handcuffs and a fire department jacket in his car.
The two-week investigation is still on-going to determine if any children may have been exploited by those now arrested.
The 21-member team created the undercover sting in conjunction with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Bremerton Police, FBI’s child Exploitation Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations, the Department of Corrections and O.U.R.
