MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas — Eighteen suspects accused in various crimes involving child abuse were arrested during a roundup in Montgomery County.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Records and Warrants Division, Homeland Security – SWAT, and the U.S. Marshal Service combined county and federal agency resources and tactical efforts to target persons wanted for various criminal offenses against children in the area. As a result of this team effort, 18 wanted persons were arrested in the operation, dubbed “Innocent Justice.”

Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson extended a debt of gratitude to his dedicated staff and the U.S. Marshal’s Service for taking the dangerous offenders out of the community.
