Online predators more active in Pa.

State authorities believe child predators who troll the Internet for naive children they can lure into lurid online chats and sexual trysts have been more active in Pennsylvania this year than ever before.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General Office’s Child Predator Unit has arrested 21 accused online sexual predators since Memorial Day, a 50 percent increase over last summer when 14 alleged pedophiles were caught between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

So far this year, the predator unit’s investigations have led to the arrest of 57 men who were allegedly engaging what they believed were minors in salacious online relationships. The “children” were actually undercover agents.
