“As of 12:30 (p.m. Thursday), and the operation is still going on, for the three-day total we have made 57 arrests,” said Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.
“These arrests are probation violations such as child molestation, CSC (criminal sexual contact) second degree with a child under 13, stalking a minor child, assault with a dangerous weapon, drug offenses, aggravated stalking,” Wickersham said.
The operation targeted 300 such individuals.
Wickersham said those not arrested this time around are being warned that they will be caught.
