The Sting 

On Thursday, June 30 members of the Worcester Police Vice Squad conducted surveillance in the Main South area for prostitution activity. 

A group of undercover officers went to the Main South neighborhoods early in the morning. Female and male officers were set up approximately 7 a.m. 

At approximately 7:20 a.m. a female officer was the first to be approached by a male operating a motor vehicle, the female officer was propositioned and the male was subsequently placed under arrest. 

The entire operation lasted about 3 hours with a total of 5 males and 3 females arrested.
