On July 22, law enforcement say the men ended up caught right after an procedure was carried out by a anxious citizens group affiliated with the Colorado Ped Patrol whose members pose as underage small children on social media web pages.
“They would confront the personal and notify area law enforcement. The citizens delivered the responding officers with screen shots of discussions and detailed information that was shared amongst the citizens and the suspects,” Atlantic Metropolis law enforcement reported in a push launch.
The next males had been arrested:
- Jose Machuca, 51, of Hyattsville, MD.
- Sambatrimiaina Raminoson, 26, of Atlantic Metropolis.
- Eugene Pulley, 49, of Philadelphia, PA.
- Clifford Horn, 54, of Chalfont, PA.
Action Information has confirmed that Horn worked as a corporal with the Central Bucks Regional Police Section.
The citizens group says the person, later identified as Horn, went on the Grindr app to arrange a assembly with the underage child for a quick sex act. He allegedly despatched a picture of himself in his underwear and organized to satisfy with a 14-yr-old boy. Horn failed to know he was speaking with the involved citizens group.
Video acquired by Motion Information displays the team confronting Horn.
Thomas Fellows, the founder of Colorado Ped Patrol, spoke with Motion News.
“I know he was a little something because he wouldn’t answer, he didn’t want to incriminate himself. He failed to want to speak,” Fellows said.
Motion Information went to Horn’s dwelling in Chalfont, Pennsylvania to get his aspect of the tale, but no one particular answered the doorway.
The Central Bucks Regional Police Department declined to remark on the case. The Bucks County District Attorney’s Business office claims it has assigned staff to support New Jersey authorities with the investigation.
All of the 4 suspects have been released and will surface in court in the in close proximity to long term.

Fellows, who has assisted Atlantic City police and other departments across the country with related instances, says he launched Colorado Ped Patrol nearly 5 months in the past, and that this was very private to him.
“My brother-in-law molested my son 7 decades ago, so that is the explanation why I do this right now,” Fellows said.
So much, his attempts have led to 40 arrests of this sort throughout the country.
