Investigators with the Vice & Narcotics Division announce multiple arrests following a 3-day operation at a local community park.
From Jan. 15- 17, undercover investigators charged eight people with offenses such as indecent exposure and soliciting a lewd act following an operation at Northside Park, according to a press release.
“Just because you don’t see us, doesn’t mean were not there,” said Chief Larry D. Boone. “I want to send a clear message to all those who seek to use our parks for the wrong reasons. I assure you there will be more operations in the future.”
Investigators provided the names, photographs, and charges of those individuals arrested during the operation:
