News

POMONA, CA – NOVEMBER 12: A car slows down for two female police officers posing as prostitutes on Holt Boulevard, known to sex workers throughout southern California as “the track”, during a major prostitution sting operation November 12, 2004 in Pomona, California. Approximately 60 to 80 men are arrested each night during the sting operations. Cars driven by the arrested men are seized and become city property until a $1000 fine is paid. Each vehicle is then labeled with a large window sticker stating that the car was ?seized for solicitation of prostitution? and the photos of the men appear in a full-page ad in the local newspaper.
