Operation Broken Heart Puts 51 Louisiana Residents Behind Bars on Child Exploitation Charges
Operation Broken Heart IV was a joint operation that swept the entire country this spring. The goal was to capture criminals that target kids, and boy was it a success. US News reports that in total, 51 Louisiana residents were arrested on charges ranging from possessing child pornography to solicitation of minors. These criminals are among the worst of the worst, victimizing the most vulnerable among us to further their sick goals. One of the suspects apprehended by authorities had more than had more than 100,000 images of child pornography in his possession.
A report from KTBS claims that two men in Northeast Louisiana were among those arrested. 42 year-old Jeremy Hobson of Haughton was brought in on two counts of pornography of a juvenile, and Claudis Turnbow of Monroe was charged with 12 counts of pornography of a juvenile.
Thanks to Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and the more than 150 Louisiana law enforcement agencies across the state that participated, these dangerous and perverted individuals are off of our streets and behind bars tonight. All in all, the nationwide operation made more than 1,000 arrests in cites all across the U.S.
