FAIRFAX - Fairfax County police detectives from the Child Exploitation Unit recently conducted a three-day operation targeting online sexual predators. Eight offenders were arrested on local and federal criminal charges.

Detectives, posing as juveniles, went online and within a very short period of time, received solicitations and sexually explicit images from men wanting to meet the “child” for the purpose of engaging in inappropriate sexual activity. The suspect and “child” would arrange a time and place to meet and when the suspect arrived, he was taken into custody.

The hard work of our detectives, along with those from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and Special Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, resulted in the arrest of eight offenders. Approximately 25 local and federal criminal charges were placed, including solicitation of a minor, solicitation of a minor for prostitution, attempted indecent liberties with a minor (including a registered sex offender), and drug possession charges.
