Citywide prostitution sting nets 4 arrests
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Four women, who range in age from 29 to 52, were arrested Wednesday on prostitution charges during a citywide sting, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Three of the arrests happened in the urban core area, but one of the women was arrested near 103rd Street on the Westside, JSO reports show.
In all four cases, the women offered to perform oral sex on an undercover detective for $23, the arrest reports say.
The bust was part of the Sheriff's Office's efforts to crack down on prostitution in Jacksonville and cut down on crime. Last month, police said, 12 men were arrested on complaints of soliciting for prostitution during a sting operation along Philips Highway.
Here are the names of the four arrested this week and the charges they face:
