Federal authorities and local police arrested 82 people in a massive eight-state child exploitation sting, according to reports. A Facebook post by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) notes that “Operation Southern Impact III” was held across a number of southern states including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, according to WBNS TV. It was a “Great display of local, state, and federal partnerships,” the GBI exclaimed. The mass operation targeted people who were making or distributing child pornography.
