Former Door County Investigator Jim Valley coordinated a Brown County child sex sting operation this weekend, leading to 19 arrests.
Several law enforcement agencies – including the Sturgeon Bay Police Department - placed ads on Craigslist to target adults looking for child sex starting last Thursday.
Those who took the bait and were arrested include men from the Green Bay area, as well as Appleton, Oshkosh, Wausau and Shawano County.
Door County Sheriff Terry Vogel says no one in Door County has been arrested in this operation – dubbed Operation Vanguard -- but there were conversations from within the county with undercover officers posing as children.
Valley left Door County in January to head up a computer forensic unit for Brown County.
