9 arrested in Lafayette prostitution sting

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lafayette authorities arrested nine people during the weekend in an undercover operation aimed at halting sex trafficking and the online solicitation of juveniles.

With help from the FBI, Homeland Security Investigations and Lafayette police narcotics officers, Trooper Stephen Hammons tells The Advocate state police prowled online networking websites for people searching for prostitutes.

Hammons said there were some details of the operation he could not divulge because it might jeopardize future online undercover operations.
