Authorities in Gwinnett County arrested 23 men over a 5 day period in an online child sex sting.

Ranging in age from 19 to 48, the men traveled from areas around metro Atlanta with the intent to meet a child for sex, a statement said.

The arrangements were made for a meeting point in Gwinnett County and all of the accused thought that they were going to meet with a minor. Once they arrived, they were taken into custody.

It was very clear that these men knew that they were setting out to have sex with minors absolutely no doubt,” said GBI spokesman Bahan Rich.

24-year-old Edward Harold Ramsey, one of the men arrested, is a member of the United States Air Force. The other professions included an electrician, a construction worker, a retail employee and some were unemployed.

All of the accused have been charged with computer or electronic pornography and child exploitation. Additional charges may be forthcoming.

Rich said that investigations will continue into the background of all of the men to determine if there’s any prior history of this type of behavior.

“I would say, historically, this is not the first time someone has done something like this,” Richard said
