Police: 30 arrests have been made in ongoing prostitution operation in District of Columbia


WASHINGTON — Authorities say 30 men have been arrested as part of an ongoing prostitution enforcement operation in the District of Columbia.

Police say the men, who are charged with solicitation of prostitution, were arrested over the last week in the northwest area of the District. Police say 10 people were arrested on July 14 and since then an additional 20 men have been taken into custody.

Last week, District Councilman Jack Evans unveiled a proposal that would allow police to tow and impound a car when officers have probable cause to suspect it's been used by someone trying to pick up a prostitute.
