Less than 36-hours after the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations rolled out a new app for wanted child predators -- agents made their first arrest.
Mark Austin was arrested this afternoon -- after a number of tips were called into the ICE tipline.
The new smartphone app is part of "Operation Predator" -- a nationwide initiative to protect kids from sexual predators.
