Maui police arrested a total of 10 adult males during a reverse prostitution sting conducted over a two day period between Tuesday, Feb. 11 and Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020.

The sting was conducted by the department’s Vice Gambling and Morals Unit, with the assistance of Lahaina Patrol officers.

Police say officers targeted “Johns” by setting up what’s known as a Reverse Prostitution operation where a female Police officer poses as a prostitute to target suspected “Johns.”

In addition to the arrests, police also recovered $38,110.
