(The AEGIS Alliance) – A U.S. Marshals-led operation near the end of 2021 rescued 5 missing teen girls in the city of New Orleans, authorities revealed.
The girls located in the course of “Operation Boo Dat” which happened between the middle of October to Christmas Eve, were each between the ages of 14 and 17.
Among the teens recovered were sisters, ages 15 and 16, that had been discovered in a condo in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Officials pointed out the siblings may both be the victims of unlawful sexual activities.
An age 15 girl determined to be a runaway, was likewise one of the girls rescued by officials.
“That teen had prior human sex trafficking issues in Baton Rouge, but her pimp had recently been murdered,” the U.S. Marshals Service stated.
The Marshals helped make 30 apprehensions by means of the effort, along with 17 of them connecting to offenses of felony sex offender registrations.
“During Operation Boo Dat over one hundred sex offender compliance checks were also attempted or completed in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes,” the U.S. Marshals Service pointed out.
“Sex Offender compliance checks require law enforcement officers to go to the sex offender’s reported address of residence to verify that the person still lives at the provided address,” the U.S. Marshals Service added. “Often countless hours of follow-up investigative work are required during and after a compliance check.”
