As part of the operation, detectives with the Montgomery County division of the Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force monitored chat groups on social media for 12 months.

The defendants participated in groups chats that were dedicated to distributing child sexual abuse material, and most of them posted illicit images to the groups, the DA’s office says.

Some of them allegedly acted as administrators of the groups and controlled who could access them.

Detectives worked with authorities in other jurisdictions to apprehend the defendants.

Officials say the Montgomery County Pct spearheaded the operation. 1 Constable’s Office and the DA’s Office, along with support from the Montgomery County Constables’ Offices, Precinct 2, Precinct 3, Precinct 4 and Precinct 5, the Conroe Police Department, the Texas Department of Public Safety, Homeland Security Investigations, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
