More than 50 people have been arrested across the state of Texas as part of a nationwide a sting operations into online child sex crime.

The alleged perpetrators are believed to have attempted to meet up with underage children for sex, while others possessed and promoted child pornography.

Officers from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force posed as underage children online for the sting, dubbed Operation ‘Broken Heart’.

The abuses are alleged to have occurred over several months in Montgomery, Fort Bend and Harris counties near Houston. Among those arrested were public employees.

Authorities have revealed some details on how the sting operation took place as well as information about some of the individual cases.

Officers said that the majority of the arrests involved adults grooming children online, or undercover officers posing as children.

‘This is not just something that is relegated to your next door neighbor or one town away,’ Houston Police Sergeant Luis Menendez-Sierra, who works closely with ICAC, said. ‘Parents need to be vigilant.’
