Sixteen men and women were arrested in Mobile this week during a prostitution round-up dubbed “Operation Snag.”
According to the Mobile Police Department, the operation was led by its Narcotics and Vice Unit, which had officers pose as prostitutes at multiple locations throughout Mobile May 9.

Most of the arrests were for patronizing a prostitute or solicitation of prostitution, though there were some additional charges for drug possession and other unrelated offenses.
