Oxnard Police conducted a sting operation targeting men soliciting women online for sexual acts. Detectives posted an online ad on a commonly used website for prostitution activities. Men who called the number, and solicited illegal activities were directed to come to a specific location by a female undercover officer.

The men were then arrested. 14 men, including 10 from Oxnard were arrested on solicitation for prostitution charges.
