MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX – During a three month period beginning in April, the Montgomery County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC), which targets Internet based sexual predators, arrested 28 adults who were allegedly using the Internet for the sexual exploitation of children online.

During these undercover sting operations, those arrested for the felony offense of Online Solicitation of a Minor, believed he was meeting up with a minor he had previously contacted and communicated with online. The purpose of the meeting was to engage in sexual contact at predetermined locations. Once the suspects arrived at the meeting location, they were arrested. During the course of these operations, some of the suspects were also charged with the felony offenses of Possession of Child Pornography and Attempted Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, if such evidence was discovered during the course of the investigation.

The ICAC Task Force consists of officers from the Conroe Police Department, all five of the Montgomery County Constable’s Offices, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, Department of Homeland Security, Texas Department of Public Safety, U.S. Marshals, and the Texas Attorney General’s Office.

The Montgomery County ICAC Task Force asks that anyone with information concerning illegal conduct or other potential victims by these suspects to call the ICAC Tip Line at 936-760-6910.
