Multiple task forces recovered eight missing and endangered children and arrested 18 sex offenders in Louisiana as part of a two-month investigation, the U.S. The Marshals Service made Tuesday’s announcement.

Operations “Return of the School Year” and  “NO Saints and Sinners 2021” ran in the New Orleans area from Aug. 1 to Sept. 30 as part of two U.S. According to a press release, the Marshals task force was uncovered. The statement states that they also found multiple sex offenders who had been convicted in the past and involved children.

“This was another example of the results that can be accomplished with continuing law enforcement teamwork,” said U.S. Scott Illing is the Eastern District Marshal. “Much was accomplished during the recovery efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Ida.”

According to U.S. Marshals, the operations also led to the arrests of six others, including three adult males with warrants for sexual battery on a 7-year-old, two counts of production of child porn on a 14-year-old girl, and aggravated rape and kidnapp charges that occurred in 1989, respectively.

Roman E. Byler was a lifetime Delaware registration sex offender. He had previously been convicted of felony sex with minors. Byler, who was wanted for cutting off his electronic monitor and fleeing his Delaware probation, was found in August, living in New Orleans unregistered in a high drug-trafficking area.

Three children returned home with their parents during the operation, and three other children were found by the Marshals Service. The investigations led to one recovery in Phoenix, where a teenage girl was en route to Las Vegas to meet up with an older man she met on the internet.

The two-month operation uncovered several allegations of human sex trafficking of minors. Three police departments in the New Orleans metro area, three sheriff’s offices across the state, and the state police and department of child and family services assisted the FBI and U.S. The investigations were conducted by Marshals.
