Justice For Them

TEMPE, Ariz. — Almost 40 people who are suspected of soliciting various sex acts with minors were arrested in an undercover operation by police, according to official documents. 

During the operation, undercover detectives placed ads on websites commonly used by suspects looking for illegal sex acts, according to documents from the Tempe Police Department.
