23 Men Netted in Laurel Prostitution Arrests

Task Force Results in Laurel Prostitution Arrests

On Thursday, September 20,  2012, law enforcement officers from the Howard County Police Department, Anne Arundel Police Department, Laurel Police Department, Maryland State Police, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations carried out a “reverse prostitution sting” operation, The Baltimore Sun reported.

As a result, 23 men were arrested; of these, 14 of the prostitution arrests were made by Howard County Police. Two of the men were Howard County residents.

Police Don’t Release Prostitution Arrest Photos from Prostitution Arrests

As is typical of Howard County prostitution arrests, police did not release prostitution arrest photos of the men arrested. In the past, Howard County Police have released the names of those subjected to prostitution arrests, but not in this case. The men who were arrested probably were relieved that neither their photos, nor their names, were released publicly.
