LYNNWOOD — Decoy Lynnwood police officers netted nine men on charges of soliciting prostitution during a recent "sting" operation, spokeswoman Trudy Dana said Friday.
Police contacted 14 suspected johns during the past week. Dana said. Nine of them will face charges.
Police used female officers posing as prostitutes in various parts of the city, she said.
"We want to get the word out that picking up prostitutes in Lynnwood is likely to get you arrested," said Sgt. Patrick Fagan of the department’s special operations section. "We plan to continue these stings at a number of locations on as regular basis."
The session, which will be related to real estate, is expected to last about an hour.
The local Soroptimist chapter donates 100 percent of the funds it raises back to the community. Organizations and events interested in requesting support are asked to submit in writing (200 words or less) who they represent, their background and their needs.
Submit applications to Bonnie Williams, community service chairwoman, 9416 61st Drive NE, 98270. The request deadline is Dec. 1.
