Prostitutes, Pimps Who Used Web Ads Nabbed In Petaluma Sting

PETALUMA, Calif.(AP) - Police have arrested 11 people from the San Francisco Bay area in a prostitution sting targeting those who post sex for sale ads on Craigslist and Lovings.com.

Police nabbed the suspects by contacting them through the ads selling sex and arranging to meet them in Petaluma on Thursday.

The suspects were arrested when they met the undercover officers
and offered sex for money.

Police said they undertook the sting to discourage people from using Petaluma hotels and motels for illegal trysts and plan more such operations.
