UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Sheriff's investigators in northeast Wisconsin say they want to catch more child sex predators by stepping up Internet sting operations. 

Last month 15 people were arrested in six northeast and central counties in a sting conducted by several law enforcement agencies.  Door County investigator Jim Valley tells WLUK TV in Green Bay that the largest numbers of arrests showed that either the sting was a rousing success -- or more needs to be done to address the problem.  The October sting was the first in the region to include a weekend, with the busiest activity on Friday and Saturday nights.  Valley said he'd like to see future stings run for at least seven days. 

Brown County Sheriff John Gossage said he's working on ways for adding officers to the multi-jurisdictional Internet stings.
