Kyle Andrew Negus Death, Obituary – During an operation that took place over the weekend, more than twenty people, including a director of a funeral home, a soldier, and correctional officers, were detained in an effort to reduce the exploitation of children. A news release with some specifics of Operation Mayday was issued by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Both agencies intend to issue another statement with additional details later on today.
The 22 suspects, ranging in age from 19 to 52, were taken into custody after, according to the release, they had been talking with male or female children under the age of 18 online before flying to see them for the goal of having sex. In addition, the operation targeted individuals who are willing to exploit children by purchasing sex with a minor or recruiting victims of child sex trafficking. These individuals were targeted in both of these ways.
Every one of the suspects is being investigated for their possible involvement in a criminal effort to conduct child molesting. There is a possibility that there will be additional fees. Those detained as part of “Operation Mayday” are shown in this slide show alongside their booking images.
Six of the suspects admitted to having sexual contact with minors when they were interrogated by the police. At the time of his arrest, a suspect had two weapons in the vehicle he was driving. Every mobile phone and electronic gadget was taken into custody. These devices are going to be processed and examined, and after examining the results, additional charges can be filed against the user.
As part of the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, a total of sixteen additional law enforcement agencies and prosecutors’ offices participated in the operation alongside the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit, the Georgia Information Sharing and Analysis Center, and the sheriff’s office
