The Killeen Police Department announced the arrest of 10 people on prostitution charges as part of an undercover operation.
Detectives with the Killeen Police Department Organized Crime Unit conducted the operation on June 15 in response to criminal activity that was being monitored by detectives, according to a KPD press release. The department also received complaints from residents who observed the criminal activity.
The operation targeted “Johns” in contrast to a previous sting conducted on May 19 that targeted prostitutes themselves. During that operation, detectives arrested seven people in connection with prostitution-related offenses and three on drug charges.
Detectives are conducting additional follow-up investigations, the release said.
Those arrested were:
Julio Cesar Hernan, 22
Stanley Robert Evans Jr., 36
Kameron Deoni Robinson, 36
Conrad Jerome Roges, 32
Bob Allen Foster, 54
Jonathan Gabriel Kiprotichngeny, 21
Andrew Gabriel Reyes, 21
Juan Marcos Gonzalez, 32
Ronald Eugene Henderson, 68
A woman was also arrested during the operation but the Killeen Daily Herald could not verify the charge.
The nine arrested all inquired about sex through the website Backpage.com, according to the complaint. The arrests were made at the Courtyard Marriott hotel in the 1700 block of East Central Texas Expressway.
