It was just a few days ago when I told you about how officers went door-to-door in neighborhoods across Tampa, visiting convicted sex offenders to remind them of their responsibilities during Halloween. Convicted sex offenders are forbidden by law to draw children to their homes in any way. No lights or yard decorations are permitted. No costumes or makeup is allowed. CSOs are also forbidden to leave their porch lights on during Halloween observance.
Despite the warnings, Hillsborough County deputies arrested 40 sex offenders during what they called a “Halloween Operation” last night. On Monday, deputies managed to contact 123 offenders to remind them of the rules they must follow over Halloween. While the majority of the arrests were made due to probation violations, several of the suspects were arrested on new felony charges. Investigators say electronic devices were seized during the arrests, but provided no further details. Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister took a moment to thank his deputies and the rest of the team that it took to carry out the operation. The Halloween operations occur every year and are carried out with the aid of local and state agencies. Source: WFLA.com
