Minneapolis – Officers with the Third Precinct Community Response Team conducted a 6-day undercover “john” detail from July 12 to July 17 in response to neighborhood complaints of increased prostitution activity. The sting netted 53 alleged customers, and police also made a handful of arrests for other offenses.
Along with the citations issued, 23 vehicles were also seized. A vehicle seizure is the first legal step in a forfeiture process when a vehicle is used in the commission of certain crime. Ultimately, the owner could ultimately lose ownership of the car.
