With the help of local branches of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Lafayette County Metro Narcotics and the Mississippi Attorney General’s office, investigators with the Oxford Police Department arrested four individuals during a joint prostitution sting Saturday night in Oxford.

Initial investigations and information gathering for this undercover task force began in the winter of 2014. Oxford Police Department investigators gathered information concerning a series of criminal events that occurred over a period of time and worked to connect the incidents to electronic advertisements for prostitution.

The Oxford Police Department quickly contacted the local branches of both the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Attorney General’s office for assistance on this case. With the three entities working together, progress was made and the initial operation Friday night was executed, with the help of the Oxford-Lafayette Metro Narcotics unit.

“While four arrests may seem like a small number, citizens need to know that this specific criminal activity can be related back to domestic violence, assaults, robberies and illegal narcotic activity. It is not simply the exchange of money for sex,” said Joey East, Chief of Police. He added that, “this is just the first operation in an ongoing investigation that will continue until I am confident that we have done our very best to ensure the safety of our citizens so that our town continues to be the family friendly and retiree attracting destination that is truly is.”

More details will be released as more information is gathered and available. For more information call the Oxford Police Department at 662-232-2400.
