Five Tennessee Men Among Seven Nabbed in Sex Sting

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- Five Tennessee men were among seven arrested in an undercover sex sting operation in Southern Kentucky.

From Thursday through Sunday of last week, a room of the Bowling Green Police Department was transformed into a command center, and a house in Warren County was monitored for child predators.

Police say the suspects were lured in by an officer posing as a 13 year old girl.

The message police are hoping to spread is that no matter where you live your children are in danger of online predators.

"Unfortunatley, any place the internet is, there are predators. and if your children are on the computer, there's a high probability, over eighty percent that they've been approached by some one attempting to have sex with them," KBI Commissioner David James said.

Volunteer TV sister station WBKO in Bowling Green has obtained video of the sting.
