Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane provided an update to an ongoing investigation of suspected child predators.

A two week sweep of suspected child predators in southeastern Pennsylvania netted 22 suspects who have been placed under arrest by the state Attorney General's Child Predator Section. 

According to 6 ABC, the sweep was part of an ongoing investigation into the exchange of child pornography and online advertisements relating to the sexual exploitation of minors. 

Arrests were made in Philadelphia, Montgomery, Bucks and Delaware counties. 
"This means to a lot of people in the area, 'You have child predators living among you, and these people are a danger to children - whether they are depicted in video or living in the neighborhood," said Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

Police have so far released the names of 15 suspects: 

Casey James Boone, 28, Montgomery County

A list of charges against each of the suspects was provided in a press release from the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office.
