Tips from the Department of Homeland Security's "Operation Predator" app led to the arrest of a suspected child predator in Michigan only 36 hours after he was first profiled. Austin was arrested in Flint Friday afternoon. He's being held on a charge of distributing marijuana. Prosecutors say he downloaded more than 100 child pornography pictures and videos. Those charges are still pending. The "Operation Predator" app can be downloaded from iTunes and the Apple App Store. It will eventually be available for other smartphones.
