hirteen men were arrested during an undercover prostitution sting conducted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. After receiving numerous complaints about prostitution, the DCSO Special Investigations Division ran an ad on the Internet advertising sexual acts for money. Numerous suspects reportedly called the phone number listed on the online ad and were given the address to a room in the area of Thornton Road in Lithia Springs. They arrived at the room, expecting to meet a prostitute, but were arrested for misdemeanor pandering instead.  The identities of the men were publicly released. All the men were granted a $3,500 bond for the pandering charge, and three of them were also charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and were granted a $1,000 bond on that charge.

In February 2017, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigation Division and the Douglasville Police Special Operations Unit conducted an operation targeting prostitution and pandering. The operation took place on Feb. 17 and ended in the arrest of several male sex buyers. The men were charged with pandering, and one was additionally charged with possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
