Feds Hunt Down Sex Offenders In Metro Area

DENVER (CBS4) – Several law enforcement agencies across Colorado are carrying out one of the biggest sex offender busts in state history.

Officers arrested the first suspects before dawn Monday. Agents are tracking down sex offenders who haven’t registered.

“They’re out there, they’ve failed to register and they could be going back to those crimes and committing more sex assaults,” said Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officer John John Fabbricatore.

Teams of officers are patrolling the Denver metro area through the month of August. The U.S. Marshals office is conducting one of the most comprehensive busts on non-complying sex offenders the region has ever seen.

A dozen agencies are working together to sweep those offenders off the streets, including Denver Police, the Denver Sheriff,Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Corrections and Aurora Police.

“It’s a huge asset to be able to get a bunch of agencies on the street and share those assets and share all the skills that the different agencies have to go out and look for these guys,” said Fabbricatore.

This year could be the busiest sting so far. It continues through Aug. 28.

“Every year it has increased. The first year we had 54, the next 72 and last year we had 151,” said Deputy U.S. Marshal Roberto Rodriguez.

    We live and own a home not 3 doors away from where one of the “suspects”
    was arrested on Monday Morning. We need to know who this man was and the number of the house he came out of. There is a number children in this neighbor hood and the families need to know. How do we find out this informatin? Thank you

    Finally, law enforcement is doing something worth the tax payers money. We need to push for stonger punishments on these creeps. The fact that they are even allowed back out into the world without constant monitoring is beyond me.

      Are you kidding me??? I’m fine with law enforcement agencies working together on this one. I’m not a huge fan of illegal immigration since I’m a naturalized citizen myself but I am vehemently against sex offenders and pedophiles since I was a victim as a child. The way that these people destroy other people’s lives is heinous and it’s not just the victim that they destroy. They destroy whole families with the deviant desires. They should be put away forever. They prey on those that are weaker than them and scar their victims forever. I only wish that the death penalty was allowed for extreme cases of sexual abuse and assault.
