A police sergeant, firefighter, nurse and registered sex offender were among the 24 men caught by authorities conducting a child-sex sting in New Jersey.

The New Jersey Office of the Attorney General revealed Tuesday that all 24 men were arrested after being identified in a sting that saw New Jersey investigators posing as a boy and a girl — both 15 — on popular apps, online games and chats.

The arrests were said to have been made at a four-bedroom house in Toms River, New Jersey, which was filled with undercover officers.

Authorities said the 24 men had traveled to the home during the sting’s ‘meet week’ — occurring between September 5 to 9 — with the alleged intention of having sex with the underage teen they thought they were interacting with online.

The sting itself was named ‘Operation Open House.’

‘When they showed up at our undercover house seeking to meet their intended victims for sex, they were arrested,’ New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said during a press conference Tuesday, 6 ABC reported.

‘The defendants are now charged with serious crimes and are either behind bars or subject to very stringent pre-trial monitoring,’ Grewal said.

Police said that during the sting, which took place over the course of several weeks, the undercover officers had clearly identified themselves as being underage boys or girls while talking with the 24 men who were charged.

Despite allegedly being under the impression that they were talking with underage teens, the men were said to have made arrangements to meet the teens for sex anyway.

Grewal highlighted one particular suspect and arrest — Richard Conte, 47, a Howell Township, New Jersey, police sergeant.
