SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California parole agents have arrested 85 sex-offender parolees during an annual statewide Halloween sweep known as “Operation Boo.”

The agents checked on 1,700 parolees to make sure they were not contacting children out trick-or-treating.

The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says agents confiscated seven weapons and found 17 parolees with narcotics.
