CORONA: Week-long prostitution crackdown nets 8 arrests

A week-long effort to deter prostitution in Corona netted the arrests of eight men accused of soliciting an undercover female police officer, investigators say.


The so-called “John” program was conducted along West Sixth Street.

“These programs utilize a female undercover police officer who loiters in areas where street-level prostitutes are known to frequent,” Sgt. Kim Velasco said in a written statement. “When the officer is propositioned for sex acts in exchange for compensation, the male suspect is taken into custody.”

Arrested for investigation of soliciting prostitution were a 40-year-old Lake Elsinore man, a 46-year-old Seal Beach man, and six Corona men ranging in age between 28 and 60.

The effort comes after business owners complained about loitering prostitutes, according to the statement. And women have complained about men soliciting them for sex acts.
