Sting operation targets child predators in northeastern WI

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- A law enforcement sting operation has targeted adults who prey on children in northeastern Wisconsin.
  
Authorities say several men have been arrested for child enticement, trafficking a child and other crimes as the result of the sting which involved about 75 officers from at least seven agencies. The men they arrested over the last several days are from Green Bay, Appleton, Lawrence and the Oshkosh area.
  
Law enforcement officers posted an ad on Craigslist.com. They say it didn't take long for the responses to roll in.
  
Press-Gazette Media reports a man arrested in Ashwaubenon had two pairs of handcuffs and a gagging device on him when he was arrested. Police say a 51-year-old Green Bay man thought he had arranged a meeting with a 15-year-old girl, who was actually a Door County sheriff's deputy.
