FBI Brings ‘Operation Cross Country’ to Shreveport-Bossier
A nationwide anti-child sex trafficking sweep dubbed Operation Cross Country has landed dozens of people in jail and the recovery of more than 75 children who were in danger.
Thirty of the arrests were made in the Shreveport-Bossier area. Many of the men arrested were pimps accused of exploiting children. The FBI has been working with local police to track the criminals in what's dubbed "Operation Cross Country".
Why is our area on the map for these kinds of criminals? Task Force members say the accessiblity to Interstate-20 from Dallas to Atlanta is one key draw to our area. Another is the local casinos and hotels.
