It’s the oldest profession in humanity, but it’s still illegal in Miami Springs.
Today, the Miami Springs Police Department announced the arrests of 17 people on charges ranging from aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer (which can get you shot and killed) to prostitution, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a concealed firearm, and narcotics violations.
The two-day sting operation was executed between 08/12/22 and 08/13/22 with Miami Springs Police Department (MSPD) detectives, officers assigned to the MSPD Crime Suppression Team, and investigators of the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office Human Trafficking Task Force.
The operation targeted prostitution activity based out of hotels located on along NW 36 Street. Part of the operation’s goal was also to attempt to identify the victims of human trafficking.
