Ft. Sill Soldiers caught in prostitution sting

See also

In a multi-agency operation involving the Department of Homeland Security, the Lawton Police Department, and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, more than a handful of Ft. Sill Soldiers found themselves on the wrong side of the law this week.

The sting, meant to uncover human trafficking and rescue victims of prostitution, only lasted 48 hours, but netted 3 pimps, 9 prostitutes, and 13 johns. The exact number of Ft. Sill Soldiers arrested was not released by any of the agencies.

The growing prostitution problem in and around military bases has only gotten worse in recent years with online ads on sites such as Backdoor.com and the ever popular Craigslist.org.

According to KSWO-TV in Oklahoma, the operation dubbed “Pretty Woman Three” was the third such sting in an ongoing operation. Undercover agents acted as both “clients and escorts to tackle all sides of the crime.”

Spokesperson for Ft. Sill, Lieutenant Colonel Rory Crooks released a statement yesterday on behalf of the post.

"We have some Soldiers whose actions do not reflect the values of our profession."

In a message to the general community, to include the large Army post, all agencies involved said they are planning ongoing operations to stem this type of illegal activity.
