Six women were arrested Wednesday on sex-related charges in an undercover operation in Greenacres, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
The operation targeted street-level narcotics dealers, prostitutes and those soliciting prostitutes, the sheriff’s office said. Both deputies and detectives were involved in the operation.
The women, ranging in age from 24 to 41, all face either prostitution or sex offenses, jail records show. One woman also is charged with carrying an unlicensed concealed firearm.
Two of the women live in West Palm Beach, records show. One is from Lake Worth, another from Palm Springs. One is from Broward County and another lives in Miami-Dade County, according to jail records.
The sheriff’s office arrested 13 men last month during a prostitution sting near West Palm Beach.
