Child sexual predator sting leads to 5 arrests
Authorities in Great Falls say five men have been taken into custody following an undercover sting operation in which the men sought to have sex with a 12-year-old girl.
The Great Falls Tribune in a story on Friday reports that Perry A. Gamache, Zachary Beston, Albert Stuart Ross, Edward Burk Dupius and Miguel F. Gardipee have been charged with felony sexual abuse of children.
Investigators say the local Internet Crimes Against Children task force posted a series of ads on websites beginning June 24.
Police say the men responded to the ads.
