In a coordinated effort by multiple law enforcement agencies, a joint operation targeting crimes against children was executed in Rains County on September 8, 2023. The operation resulted in the arrest of a 53-year-old Dallas man who now faces charges under the Texas Penal Code.

The agencies involved in this extensive operation included:

  1. Rains County Sheriff
  2. Rains County CID (Crimes Against Children)
  3. Rains County Patrol
  4. Caddo Mills Police Department
  5. Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) - Wood County
  6. Texas DPS CID
  7. Office of Inspector General
  8. Office of Attorney General

The primary focus of the operation was to combat online solicitation of minors, a serious crime that poses a significant threat to the safety of children in the digital age. As a result of their efforts, the joint operation led to the arrest of 53-year-old Christian Paul Castillo, a resident of Dallas.

Following his arrest, Christian Paul Castillo was taken into custody, and a bond of $300,000.00 was set. However, it has been reported that he has since bonded out.

The investigation is ongoing.
