Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina says nine more people, which brings the total to 46 over twelve months, have been charged as part of an operation targeting online predatory behavior and the possession and distribution of child pornography.

The dozens of arrests were part of Operation Safe Quarantine, which went after people engaged in the online exploitation of children during the pandemic.
