GALVESTON, Texas — A prostitution sting resulted in the arrest of 17 men accused of soliciting sex from an undercover police officer, authorities said.
The men, ranging in age from 25 to 63, were arrested on misdemeanor charges of prostitution with bonds set at $5,000 each, Galveston police Capt. Jeff Heyse said in a statement.
The Thursday sting was organized by the department’s Vice and Narcotics Division with the assistance of Dickinson police, Heyse said.
Detective Joey Quiroga sent an undercover female officer to 35th Street and Seawall Boulevard to pose as a prostitute, Heyse said.
