Ten sex offenders were arrested for allegedly violating their parole on Halloween, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

In an effort dubbed “Operation Boo,” the Sheriff's Department’s Regional Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement team joined the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation on Halloween night and checked on 358 sex offenders to make sure they were staying away from trick-or-treaters and obeying their curfews, among other parole terms.

The sweep led to 10 arrests, officials said. Sex offenders who are homeless were guided to special centers set up so they could obey the terms of their release.
