Sheriff’s anti-prostitution sting nets 13 alleged ‘johns’

The office of Alamance County’s sheriff has arrested 13 men in a sting operation that zeroed in on people engaged in prostitution and similar offenses.

The sheriff’s office announced the arrests of 13 alleged “johns” on Friday – two days after the agency cast its dragnet to snare individuals “involved in prostitution and human trafficking…in and around Alamance County.”

The suspects caught in this particular sting are all accused of “soliciting prostitution” and hail, by and large from areas outside of Alamance County. Twelve of these individuals were released after their arrests on written promises to appear in court.

The only suspect in this sting to be held under an actual bond is Tkyree Denard Speller. A 25-year-old from 1290 Patriot Pointe Drive in Hillsboro, Speller faces numerous drug-related charges in addition to one count of soliciting prostitution. According to the sheriff’s office,
