PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Yavapai County authorities say nine men have been arrested in a prostitution sting.

County sheriff’s officials say some of those men were seeking to engage in sex acts with juveniles.

They say each man had responded to an ad posted on the internet and arranged to meet the “prostitutes,” who were actually undercover law-enforcement officers.

Sheriff’s officials say the men were arrested at an undisclosed hotel after they allegedly requested sexual acts and offered or presented payment for them.

Other law-enforcement agencies that participated in the sting included the Prescott, Cottonwood and Chino Valley police departments; the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Gang Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission task force; the FBI; Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking; and the Department of Homeland Security.
