Beaumont Detective honored nationally
BEAUMONT - A Beaumont detective is in Austin today being honored by a national organization for his role in capturing an international predator.
Jeffrey Curl is one of ten Texas officers receiving an award from the center for missing and exploited children.
Detective curl helped catch 32 year old Bryan Pringle of Canada. Pringle lived in Canada when he posed as a 15 year old boy on Facebook.
Detectives say Pringle tried to lure two girls in Beaumont and others By asking them inappropriate questions about sex.
Police were able to catch Pringle after the children told their parents who told police.
"Its happening every day and children being informed and knowing how to react is the most important thing about it," said Jeff Curl.
