53 Johns Arrested in Minneapolis Prostitution Sting

According to Minneapolis Police, 53 people who were soliciting prostitutes were arrested over a six day period during a local prostitution sting on “Johns.”

The arrests occurred between July 12 and 17 as part of a countrywide effort that was coordinated with the Sheriff’s Office in Cook County, Illinois.

In total, there were 64 arrests made during the stink. Fifty-three of them were Johns soliciting sex for money. The rest were narcotics-related, loitering, and other offenses.

Michael Sullivan, Third Precinct Inspector said that the solicitation of prostitution is a crime that impacts the entire community and that sex buyers instigate an industry that is exploitative. He commended the officers on the excellent job they did strengthening the stance that the activity is illegal and will not be tolerated on Minneapolis streets.

A majority of the enforcement focused on the area between 3rd and 17th Avenues on Lake Street East. There has been a lot of complaints coming from that area about increased prostitution activity.

Also seized in the bust were 23 vehicles.

Of those arrested was a Canadian lawmaker. What he and many others found out was that the women wearing the tight shorts were undercover police officers who did well walking the walk and talking the talk. The code word for police to move in was the word “condom.”

This was the routine over and over again, as police would move in and cuff the suspect in only a 2 minute period before disappearing again.

However, the johns started fighting back. They blew the lid off of the sting in Minneapolis and even posted photos of the undercover cops. In the meantime, the actual prostitutes were rather angry that someone else was intruding on their turf. Two of them were arrested for obstruction. They were said to have become rather territorial.
