25 suspects arrested in Spring Valley drug, prostitution stingPosted: Updated:
Authorities say they made a total of 25 arrests in Spring Valley today as part of a major sting operation targeting drugs and prostitution.
A two-month investigation called Operation Lifeline led police to a home on a quiet residential street where they say alleged prostitutes were seeing between 30-50 men a day.
As part of the bust, officials say they also seized marijuana, cocaine, a handgun, four vehicles and about $6,200. They say charges range from prostitution to gang assault and gambling.
Operation Lifeline is the third major investigation and bust within the last year in Spring Valley. Police say that between the three stings, about 100 people have been arrested.
