TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — Tupelo police say officers have made their 15th arrest this year as part of an ongoing investigation into adults trying to attract a child for sex.
That latest arrest came Saturday afternoon when police picked up 28-year-old Carlos Malone of Columbus.
He appeared before a judge Monday afternoon in Lee County Justice Court.
Detectives declined to release specifics about the arrest, saying too much information made public now could jeopardize the case if it becomes a federal one.
However, they did say Malone was out on parole for child abuse when he was taken into custody.
