Four central PA men arrested in Patton Township in child predator sting
In a significant joint law enforcement effort, four men from Central Pennsylvania were arrested in Patton Township for attempting to sexually exploit minors.
Christopher L. Crispen (Howard), Robert D. Mansberger (Cassville), Walter T. Sitosky (Houtzdale), and Gregory Wilson (Lewistown) were apprehended separately between November 8-10 after communicating with undercover officers they believed were minors or intermediaries.
Each engaged in conversations and arranged meetings with the intent of sexual contact with what they thought were teenagers.
The collaborative operation involved the FBI, local and state police, and was part of a broader initiative to combat human trafficking and protect children from sexual exploitation.
The accused face multiple felony charges and are currently held in custody, with preliminary hearings scheduled.
