PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police arrested 18 men during recent online sex trafficking stings.

During the stings, the bureau’s sex trafficking unit used online ads where men contacted police decoys to pay for sex acts. Investigators were helped by Portland-area hotels in the effort.

The 18 men who were arrested ranged in age from 22 to 67 years old. They were given criminal citations to appear in court.
