Twenty-seven people have been nabbed in an Internet sex sting in Wayne County.

All but one of those arrested is from Michigan. They range in age from 19 to 57.

The Michigan attorney general's office, Wayne County sheriff's office and Van Buren Township police conducted the undercover operation Friday through Sunday.

Agents posing as minors communicated on the Internet with alleged child sex predators. They then began informing them of their location, a decoy home in Wayne County. They arrested people who came to the house and others who drove by.

Authorities also plan to arrest individuals who transmitted sexually explicit material online to agents but didn't travel to the decoy location.
