NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Marshals Service New Orleans Task Force helped arrest several suspected child predators in a large operation called “New Orleans Saints and Sinners.”
The two-month operation in the New Orleans metro area with critical support from state and local law enforcement netted 45 arrests with 27 of the arrests being for violations of the Louisiana Sex Offender Registry.
The operation was funded by the USMS Sex Offender Investigations Branch and ran from Aug. 1 through Sept. 30, which mainly focused on Sex Offenders not registering in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes.
The USMS provided funding for state and local law enforcement to conduct sex offender compliance checks to verify residential information that had been provided by sex offenders during their mandatory update appointments.
