CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Fifteen people have been arrested in connection to a sting aimed at stopping prostitution during Cheyenne Frontier Days.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2amX22M ) that the Cheyenne Police Department and FBI officials used a series of stings between Monday and Wednesday to arrest suspects accused of solicitation, prostitution and drug possession.

Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak says the FBI had noticed a spike in escort services in the area during Frontier Days, which led to the sting.

Kozak says the operation helped train Cheyenne police officers about how to spot escort services and conduct a similar sting in the future. He says the only downside of the operation was that it did not uncover any cases of overt sex trafficking.
