Thirty-one suspected online sexual predators have been arrested in Sarasota County.
The arrests announced Monday were part of "Operation Intercept." The Sheriff's Office said the suspects responded to Internet-based ads and agreed during chats with undercover officers to have sex with children. In some cases, the undercover detectives acted as parents offering up their minor children for sex.
The six-day sting ended Sunday.
