Operation Endgame nets 26 arrests in child solicitation probe
An extensive multi-agency investigation dubbed Operation Endgame resulted in 26 men arrested on charges of child solicitation and child pornography, according to Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams.
Conducted over five days in June, the undercover operation targeted men "seeking out children for sexual activity in Jacksonville," Williams said.
Joined by the FBI, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, State Attorney's Office and sheriff's offices from St. Johns, Clay, Baker and Wakulla counties, Jacksonville investigators kicked off the investigation on June 23. Their mission was to safeguard the children of Jacksonville and "remove child predators from our streets," Williams said.
