19 Subjects Arrested for Solicitation for Prostitution
On August 26, 2022 and September 15, 2022, the Claremont Police Department along with the Pomona Police Department and the Los Angeles County Probation Department conducted a two-day prostitution detail in the area of Indian Hill Blvd. and IS-10 freeway.
The Claremont Police Department has received multiple complaints from residents, business owners, and passerby’s regarding the report of prostitution in the area. During these operations, undercover officers posed as prostitutes. After the undercover officer was solicited for sex acts, the “john” was arrested.
During the two-day enforcement detail, a total of 19 subjects were arrested for solicitation for prostitution. One individual arrested was on active parole, a registered sex offender and wearing a GPS monitoring ankle bracelet as one of his conditions of parole. He was taken to the West Valley Detention Center where he was booked and held pending his court appearance. The other 18 arrestees were transported to the Claremont Police Department Jail, where they were booked and later released on citations.
