Authorities said more than 20 people have been arrested on charges related to sex trafficking and online exploitation of children in Tennessee and Georgia.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Friday that law enforcement officers conducted "Operation Watchful Guardians" this week in the two states. Agents conducted simultaneous operations that investigated and prosecuted people accused of being sex traffickers and online predators.
Agents arrested 16 men attempting to purchase sex from a prostitute and four women who were advertised as prostitutes. Victims of sex trafficking were identified and offered housing, counseling and addiction treatment.
In addition, three men were arrested for attempting to use the Internet to find underage girls for sex.
