Area residents nabbed in sex sting
***VAN BUREN TWP.- Two residents from the Belleville area and one from Ypsilanti were among 27 suspects arrested over the weekend in a far-reaching Internet sex predator sting operation.
Belleville resident Anthony Donajkowski, 35, Van Buren Township resident Keith Smallman, 23, and Ypsilanti resident Russell Schneider, 34, were invited to an undisclosed home in Van Buren Township after talking with, whom they thought, was either a 13-year-old girl or boy in an Internet chatroom. The undercover officers involved in the sting operation scheduled different times for the suspects, all male between 19 to 57, to show up at the home.
The remaining suspects, with some exceptions, came from nearby areas such as Trenton, Brownstown, Livonia, Dearborn, Monroe, Ann Arbor and Canton. Others traveled from as far as Waterford and Traverse City, and one suspect drove in from New Jersey. All of the suspects were arraigned and charged at 34th District Court over the weekend.
The arrests were the result of a collaborative Internet sex predator sting operation that had been coming together since October last year. Van Buren Township police along with deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and officials from the attorney general’s office worked with a company that specializes in busting Internet sex predators, Perverted Justice.com . It is the same company featured on NBC’s TV show “Dateline: To Catch A Predator.”
Capt. Greg Laurain, with Van Buren Township Police, commended all of the parties involved in the sting, which represented a collaborative effort of several different law enforcement departments and a number of different private companies.
"Everybody did an outstanding job on this," he said.
