FORT WORTH, Texas -- Thirty male suspects have been arrested and charged with prostitution as part of a joint operation between the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office and Arlington Police Department.

The sting, which focuses on people soliciting sex, is part of the National Johns Suppression Initiative, according to Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office spokesman David McClelland.

“The initiative attempts to curtail the demand aspect of human sex trafficking,” Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn said. “We are, and will continue to pursue predators like this in Tarrant County. We will use all resources available to ensure they are brought to justice.”
