ATLANTA (AP) – Atlanta police say they made nearly 80 arrests in “Operation Summer Heat” targeting prostitution and narcotics on city streets.

Police say more than 60 of the arrests were connected to prostitution during the six-day operation that ended Sunday morning.

Another 10 suspects were arrested on drug charges involving cocaine and marijuana.

According to Lieutenant Scott Kreher of the Atlanta Police Department, stings can prevent the occurrence of future crimes.


Authorities said many of the arrests were made in the Peachtree/Cypress Street and Ponce de Leon corridors.
