Over the past two days, investigators with the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team conducted a reverse prostitution sting with the cooperation of a local motel.  As prostitution is now facilitated in many cases on the internet, investigators used a classified internet advertising website to arrange transactions.  The individuals who responded to the specified motel to complete the sexual transaction were then arrested.

C.S.T. began this investigation after receiving complaints from the public and information from other law enforcement agencies.  Prostitution brings with it other issues, such as drug activity, robberies, and the use of underage and sex trafficked women.  The reverse stings make the crime more dangerous for “Johns” to participate in and hopefully deters them from doing so.
