GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Glendale say they’ve arrested a veteran Phoenix police officer in a prostitution sting.

Glendale police say Lt. John Geroulis was taken into custody Thursday night on suspicion of soliciting prostitution and sexual abuse.

They say the 51-year-old Geroulis was arrested as part of a multi-agency undercover operation targeting human trafficking and prostitution.

Police say Geroulis allegedly made unwanted sexual contact with an undercover Glendale detective but declined to disclose any details.

Phoenix police say the 25-year veteran suddenly retired Friday.
