MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Police said more arrests may be made in a a child sex abuse investigation that stretches through at least two counties.
On October 22, four suspects were charged by Mobile Police alone in connection with the investigation.
"We've found additional victims, and we have four suspects that have picked up 13 additional felonies," said Sgt. Chris Levy.
Mobile Police said there are multiple victims, all juveniles. Levy gave a few details of the investigation that has been going on since before May of 2012. The child sex ring investigation started in Baldwin County and quickly crossed over into Mobile County. Levy talked about the latest arrests.
"This deal, many people probably assume this was back when we made the last arrest but we're not finding that. We're finding more victims as we continue on," Levy said.
Mobile Police arrested Wendy Wood Holland, Mendy Kent, Dustin Kent, and charged William "Billy" Brownlee who was already in metro jail. Many of their family members and friends have been arrested as well.
"What we have here is a group of people who have a culture, whey believe this type of behavior is acceptable. We're not allowing that to be acceptable, we're going to continue to investigate it until we can stop the behavior," said Levy.
Levy said this type of lifestyle has been going on for much of the suspects lives and it has to stop before more are affected. Levy said when the raid was conducted, the suspects weren't surprised.
"That is surprising to us, is that it was almost like they expected it," he said.
Some of the felonies the four suspects are charged with include rape, sodomy, and sex abuse.
