Police Undercover Operation Nets 23 Men

 

            Police arrested more than 20 men and charged them with solicitation of prostitutes on Thursday, August 15.

             In response to citizen concerns and to discourage illegal activity in Fairfax County, police performed an undercover operation throughout the County between 3 and 10 p.m.

            Officers worked in an undercover capacity and, after communicating online, met men at four different hotels.

            Arrests took place at hotels in Springfield, Falls Church, Herndon, and the Tysons Corner area. In all, 23 men were charged. One of the men was also charged with possession of cocaine.

            The investigation was led by the Organized Crime and Narcotics Division (OCN) and supplemented by Patrol Officers. OCN Detectives have developed community outreach relationships with local hotels. Businesses request this type of pro-active approach of law enforcement to thwart illegal activity in their establishments.

            Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637 or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
