Sex offenders arrested and missing children recovered in New Orleans

Multiple task forces recovered eight missing and endangered children and arrested 18 sex offenders in Louisiana as part of a two-month investigation, the U.S. Marshals Service announced Tuesday.

Operations “Return of the School Year” and  “NO Saints and Sinners 2021” ran in the New Orleans area from Aug. 1 to Sept. 30 as part of two U.S. Marshals task forces, according to a news release. They also uncovered multiple sex offenders with prior convictions involving children, the statement adds.

“This was another example of the results that can be accomplished with continuing law enforcement teamwork,” said U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Louisiana Scott Illing. “Much of this work was also accomplished while dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida in the New Orleans metro area.”
