Read names of 57 caught in 'Slick John' prostitution sting

A prostitution sweep aimed mostly at snaring men resulted in 57 arrests, the Shreveport Police Department announced Tuesday.

The operation, which law-enforcement agencies named "Slick John," resulted in the arrest of people from ages 19 to 66, according to information provided by police. "John" is slang for people who buy the services of a prostitute.

Most of those arrested were charged with soliciting prostitution, although there were a few other charges, including resisting an officer, pandering, drug possession and illegal possession of a firearm. One person was charged with human trafficking.

The operation also found one missing juvenile, police said.

Only a few of those arrested were women.

In addition to the arrests, participating law-enforcement agencies seized a Hi-Point 9-mm firearm, a Smith and Wesson 9-mm firearm, 385.3 grams of marijuana with a street value of $3,853, five doses of Alprazolam with a street value of $50, 3.8 grams of powder cocaine with a street value of $380, two doses of ecstasy with a street value of $20, 20 doses of Vyvanse with a street value of $200, $3,307 in cash, and two vehicles.

The Shreveport Police Department’s vice unit conducted the operation with assistance from the Bossier City Police Department, Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control, Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Task Force and Greenwood Police Department.
