24 Arrested In East Valley Child Sex Crimes Operation

A multi-agency operation to crack down on child sex crimes coined “Operation Degrossting,” has resulted in the arrest of 24 suspects.

Among those arrested are: Brian Bush, Fernando Romero, Bryon Wood, Nathan Osborne, Frank Labarbera, Mark Bayuk, Paul Simerda, Jordan Dunn, Kenneth Palmer, Larry Jacobs, Cedric Dallas, and Melquiades Garcia-Villalobos.

Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler Police departments partnered for the undercover operation targeting the demand for child sex crimes and human trafficking. Over 6 days officers and undercover detectives placed ads on websites commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal sex acts.

The suspects solicited and/or brokered deals for various sex acts and were subsequently arrested.

The suspects in the latest operation ranged in age from 21 to 80 years old.


    • There seems to be the idea that there is an “honor” code in prison that demands molesters be punished. I’m guessing the guys already in the joint just sense a weakness in molesters and they just mean to exploit it. Be that as it may… tough crap. Do the crime; do the time.

      I’m sorry for the original victims… not these turds.

  1. What can you say about these individuals.

    Prayers for their wives, daughters, mothers
    and sisters are certainly warranted.

    Their victims naturally will be dealing
    with a lifetime of damage.
