Six Arrested in Rapid City Sex Trafficking Sting

Six men are facing charges after a sex sting out of Rapid City.

Attorney General Marty Jackley, along with United States Attorney Ron Parsons, Pennington County States Attorney Mark Vargo, Rapid City Police Chief Karl Jegeris, and Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom announce that the Division of Criminal Investigation, the South Dakota Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, and Homeland Security Investigations made the announcement in a press release Tuesday morning.

“Law enforcement has joined together in a cooperative operation that focuses on removing sexual predators from our streets. Our operations continue to protect children and send a message that South Dakota is off-limits to anyone seeking to harm our children,” Jackley stated in the release.

While the sting happened to coincide with the rally in Sturgis, it was not specific to the rally, according to Sara Rabern, the spokesperson for the Attorney General’s office. This was part of the overall series of ongoing operations done throughout the year in different locations, she told KDLT News.

The investigation resulted in the following felony arrests for sex crimes:

Robert Bungert, 55, Sturgis, Attempted Enticement of a Minor Using the Internet (18 USC 2422(b))
Zam Mung, 29, Rapid City, Attempted Enticement of a Minor Using the Internet (18 USC 2422(b))
