Six men were arrested in undercover sting as they attempted to meet up to have sex with underage children.

Last week, the Montgomery County’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC), which targets internet based sexual predators and offenders, arrested six adult males who were allegedly soliciting underage children to engage in sexual acts. These individuals were arrested on October 2nd and 3rd, 2014, as part of undercover operations in Eastern Montgomery County, Texas.
During this operation, investigators posed as underage children to communicate with would be sexual predators. Once communication was established, investigators discussed a predetermined meeting location and asked the suspect to meet them at a certain time. Based on the online communications, each suspect believed he was meeting the minor he contacted online to engage in sexual acts at the predetermined locations. As the suspects arrived at the location, they were identified and then arrested for the 2nd Degree felony offense of Online Solicitation of a Minor. This offense carries a range of punishment of 2 to 20 years in prison.
The ICAC Task Force consists of investigators from each of the Montgomery County Constable’s Office, Conroe Police Department, and the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office. The FBI also assisted with this investigation. It is unknown at this time if the suspects have engaged in any similar type of actions. The Montgomery County ICAC unit is encouraging anyone with information to contact the ICAC division at 936-760-6910.
Cindy Pulcher , ICAC Chief Prosecutor said, “We will continue to conduct these aggressive undercover operations until sexual predators realize that Montgomery County is not the place to prey on children.”
Tyler Dunman, Specialized Prosecutions Bureau Chief, said, “I applaud the work of the ICAC team of investigators and prosecutors who work tirelessly to catch these sexual predators. Their dedication is top notch and although it often goes unseen, they are making this County a safer place to live and raise children.”
