At least 10 people — including a local write-in candidate — were arrested on charges ranging from lewd and lascivious behavior with a child to human trafficking.
The arrests, which began Monday and continued Tuesday, appear to have grown out of an investigation by the Tallahassee Police Department dating back to 2018.
However, TPD was tight-lipped on its involvement in the case, and court records detailing the allegations were not immediately available.
The arrests were far from typical. The defendants were taken to the Leon County Detention Facility, but none of their names or mug shots appeared in the Sheriff’s Office’s daily booking report. Even mug shots from years-old cases involving the defendants were unavailable on the Clerk of Court’s online record system.
