Outagamie County sheriff’s deputies and Appleton police made multiple arrests last week as part of a nationwide crackdown on prostitution. Twelve men between the ages of 19 and 54 were arrested. Some were from the Fox Cities, but others traveled here from other parts of the state.
Four women, all in their mid-20s, have also been referred on prostitution charges. Three are from the Milwaukee area, and one is from the Appleton area. Four departments in Brown County also took part in the sting, and they made 15 arrests.
