DOTHAN: According to (WTVY) — More than 20 people have been arrested in connection with a prostitution sting in the City of Dothan.
The round-up was carried out over a two day period following an investigation primarily conducted over the internet.
A spokesman for the Dothan Police Department says prostitutes don't usually hang out on street corners any more and many encounters are now set-up in cyber-space.
The department's vice and narcotics division was in charge, but an investigator with the criminal division was also assigned in case any sex trafficking crimes were uncovered.
Police say the round-up is part of an overall effort to curtail sex crimes in Dothan.
