PROSTITUTION STING RESULTS IN 8 ARRESTS  

(HOUSTON, TX) – Investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office 

(HCSO) Special Investigations Unit arrested 8 people during what attendees believed to be a bachelor party. The event was actually a prostitution sting. 

On Wednesday, December 9, 2009, the Criminal Investigations Bureau’s Special Investigations Vice Unit held a mock bachelor party in north Harris County. The unit invited suspects from two targeted groups believed to have been soliciting young women, some of whom were possibly minors, for prostitution. Undercover investigators contacted the groups and negotiated for them to bring young girls to the party, specifically for providing sex for a fee to the individuals at the party. In addition, undercover investigators solicited women on popular, mainstream Internet sites to attend the party for the same purpose. The “party” was held at 714 FM 1960 West. Once the suspects arrived, undercover investigators initiated prostitution investigations and arrested five females and three males. One minor was also detained. 

The Special Investigations Vice Unit utilized multiple divisions within the HCSO such as Narcotics, Administrative Support, Auto Theft, Human Trafficking and Rescue Alliance (HTRA), Patrol, Reserves and Transportation to effectively and safely complete the operation. The FBI/ Human Trafficking Alliance was also involved due to the possibility of minors being trafficked for prostitution.
