US Marshals arrest Tucson man in Operation Safe Treat

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man was among fugitive sex offenders and child predators with outstanding arrest warrants arrested during "Operation Safe Treat VI," according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

A U.S. Marshals news release said numerous federal, state and local partners teamed to clear 76 arrest warrants during the operation.

Among those arrested was Mohomad Packeer, 32, who was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor. According to the release, Packeer allegedly placed an ad on Craigslist expressing his desire to have sex with girls of any age. Undercover Tucson Police Department detectives responded to the ad, posing as a 14-year-old girl. Packeer allegedly arranged to meet the "14-year-old" at a local park, where he was arrested, the release said.

The operation continues tonight when officials will conduct compliance checks on registered sex offenders.
