Fifteen men were arrested in a prostitution sting run by the Daleville Department of Public Safety May Facing rumors of prostitution surfacing in Daleville, Daleville Investigators Stacey Austin and Noah Suiter set up a sting operation for those believing Daleville was a safe place to meet.
All arrested men responded to a popular website advertising sex for money and made contact with the undercover decoys. Allegedly, all arrested believed when they arrived in Daleville they were going to have a sexual encounter with a prostitute.
They contacted our decoys, made known what type of sexual encounter they wanted and agreed to a price to be paid. However, their anticipations were quickly doused when they found Daleville Public Safety Officers hiding inside waiting to arrest them.
All men arrested were charged with misdemeanor Promoting Prostitution in the third degree. Since being arrested all arrested have bonded out and were given a municipal court date.
Some of unsuspecting men had drugs in their possession and weapons in their vehicles and will face additional charges. All arrested suspects had their vehicles towed by local towing services.

As the Director of Public Safety, the message is simple; if you are a so called john thinking about soliciting sex in Daleville, beware, because we will be waiting, and we will arrest you.
