A law enforcement operation in the New Orleans area in the United States, led to the discovery of five missing teenagers as well as the arrest of 30 sex offenders. The US Marshals Service revealed in a press release that in an annual multi-agency initiative dubbed “Operation Boo Dat,” conducted between mid-October and Dec. 24, 17 of the arrests were of those accused of felony sex offender registration violations. All five of the found teenagers were girls ranging between the ages of 14 and 17, according to the news release. US Marshals said that among the arrests were one of a man wanted for raping a 12-year-old girl victim in an abandoned home on the West Bank of New Orleans. Another man was arrested for an alleged sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl in June in San Patricio County, Texas, according to the US Marshals. Of the discoveries of the missing teenage girls’, one was a 16-year-old who ran away from her home in Marrero, New Orleans, by allegedly stealing a relative’s car and a handgun, according to the release. That girl was discovered in a home with “multiple adults including a strip club dancer,” the US marshal service said. Two of the other discoveries were sisters ages 15 and 16 who were found in an apartment in Baton Rouge who “may be victims of adult(s) felony criminal sexual activities,” the US Marshals said. “During Operation Boo Dat over one hundred sex offender compliance checks were also attempted or completed in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes,” said the US Marshal Service. “Sex Offender compliance checks require law enforcement officers to go to the sex offender’s reported address of residence to verify that the person still lives at the provided address. Often countless hours of follow-up investigative work are required during and after a compliance check.” The US Marshals Service said it carried out the operation along with the New Orleans Police Department, Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police, and USMS New Orleans Task Force.The post 5 missing teenage girls found, 30 sex offenders arrested in New Orleans appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
