Not feeling super great about living in Arizona at the moment, but okie dokie.
More predators are being caught under the Trump administration and it’s amazing to witness.
Out of the five men that were caught, one of them actually used to be a detective. I’m curious how prison is going to look for him. Apparently this isn’t foreign territory for the former detective, as he was previously arrested, and already out on bond, for similar charges.
A pedophile AND cop as an inmate? YIKES.
The suspects, identified as Jordan Holloway, 26, Ryan Kellerman, 36, Matthew Salley, 38, Daniel May, 40, and Christopher Butts, 44, were arrested between August 26 and September 3, according to a statement from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

The operation that led authorities to catch these sickos was called “Operation Home Alone 2.” The Arizona Department of Public Safety had detectives that participated in the operation, including other federal, state, and local agencies.
The operation, called “Operation Home Alone 2,” was intended to target sexual predators “who attempted to lure underage children with the intent of engaging in sexual activity,” authorities said.
Within two days, three of the men, Salley, May, and Holloway, were charged with one count of furnishing harmful items to a minor and one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation. Holloway was charged on August 27, where Salley and May were charged the day prior.
The former detective, Butts (what an unfortunate last name), was arrested on September 2 for the same charges as Salley, May, and Holloway.
Officials say Butts was out on bond for a previous arrest on the same charges. Police first arrested the former Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office detective back in March for allegedly planning to meet up with a teen for sex, KPNX reported.
SO MUCH BARF.
I’m currently 27 and I want to gag anytime someone younger than 25 tries to approach me. Even so, they would still be OF LEGAL AGE.
Last, but not least, Kellerman was charged the day after Butts for AGGRAVATED luring of a minor for sexual exploitation. Kellerman, like the others, was also charged for furnishing harmful items to a minor… which, I feel like I need to look up what the heck that means.
Is that referencing a penis photo, otherwise known as a d*ck pic? Perhaps supplying weapons, drugs, or?
Anyways… while I engage in further research, just know that all five men have been booked in the Pinal County Jail as officials continue their investigation and anticipate additional arrests.
