Prostitution sting leads to ten arrests

Northwest Florida

Ten people have been arrested after Escambia County Deputies set up a prostitution sting in the Brownsville neighborhood of Pensacola.

Deputies say they received a lot of complaints in the area, so they were able to catch ten people on Wednesday night.

Glenn Collins has lived in the area for ten years, and says the prostitution problem is getting worse.

“It’s everyday,” Collins said. “It’s all night, It does not make any difference what time it is. We got little kids that stay around here. They outside playing and you got a prostitute in the car with somebody and you don’t know what to do or what to say.”

Deputies say they will continue to get prostitutes off the streets.
