The U.S. Marshals said that one of the arrested suspects was a third-degree sex offender who was wanted for raping a 12-year-old girl in an abandoned house in New Orleans. According to the press release, the person was also convicted of attempting to rape a woman in a public library bathroom and must be registered as a sex offender for life.
The other suspect is a man wanted for serious sexual assault on a 14-year-old teenager in San Patricio County, Texas.
“During the Boo Dat operation, the Orleans and Jefferson Diocese also tried or completed more than 100 compliance checks for sex offenders,” the U.S. Marshals said.
“Sex offender compliance inspections require law enforcement officers to go to the residential address reported by the sex offender to verify that the person still lives at the address provided. During and after the compliance inspection, countless hours of follow-up investigations are usually required.”
The five missing adolescents rescued were all girls between the ages of 14 and 17. Two of the victims are sisters, and they “may be the victims of adult felony sexual crimes,” the US Marshal said.
According to the press release, one of the teenagers was a fugitive, and he allegedly stole a family member’s car and gun. The 16-year-old was found living with multiple adults, including a dancer in a strip club.
According to the press release, it is believed that at least two of the rescued girls are currently or previously having a “probable sex-trading relationship”.
The operation is a partnership between the U.S. Marshals Service, New Orleans Police Department, Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police and USMS New Orleans Task Force.
