The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said 18 men from Georgia and North Florida were arrested and are facing charges related to a sting targeting online child predators

The operation took months of planning, but the 18 arrests were made during a period beginning May 12. The suspects, who ranged in age from 19-58, traveled from areas around Brunswick and from North Florida to meet children for sex, according to police.

“"Our goal is to arrest people who do this, who are out to harm children." Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Debbie Garner said at a news conference.

The suspects were charged with computer or electronic pornography and Child Exploitation Prevention Act of 2007. Additional charges may be forthcoming, according to the GBI.

"Operation Riptide" was a collaborative effort coordinated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit (CEACC), the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the Glynn County Police Department.

The following were arrested and charged in Glynn County as part of “Operation Riptide”:
