RED BLUFF, Calif. -

A three-month undercover investigation by Tehama County's District Attorney Office has placed 26 people behind bars.

The investigation, called "Operation Wicked Web",  was headed by Tehama County District Attorney Gregg Cohen.

The goal of the operation was to crackdown on criminal activity over the internet and it focused on people attempting to buy and sell illegal substances or have sex with minors.

The arrests included two men who posed as tutors in order to meet minors for sex, a social worker, a man with pending pornography charges and a female minor (not pictured) who was soliciting prostitution.
