Amarillo, TX - A prostitution sting was conducted by the Amarillo Police Department on Thursday, December 12th using female officers on Amarillo Blvd.

The undercover officers would talk with the male suspects who approached them wanting to exchange money for sex. 

A total of 6 men were arrested along the 3000 block of Amarillo Blvd. East. 

Cpl. Sean Slover with the Amarillo Police Department says this sting sends a clear message to the community.
