PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Twelve men are under arrest in a child predator bust led by authorities in New Hampshire.
All twelve are accused of trying to sexually exploit children using the internet, and then meeting up with them to try to have sexual contact.
The New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force said in a release that Operation Cyber Guardian took place over a three-day span this week.
"Predators are forewarned that we will use all of our resources available to make sure there is no safe place to hide for those who would victimize children," Sgt. John Peracchi, the commander of the task force, said in a release.
Those arrested range from 20 to 58 years old. All are residents of New Hampshire or Massachusetts.
One of them, David Martin of Nashua, is already a registered sex offender.
