Multiple suspects have been arrested in a two day vice operation targeting prostitution and alcohol sales to underage customers in Shreveport.
Shreveport Police Vice agents conducted two sting operations last week, in which they say more than a dozen were arrested and charged with various offenses.
The first operation was conducted on March 13th when undercover agents visited several business that are currently licensed to sale alcoholic beverages.

Of the nine establishments visited, police say seven of the nine businesses sold alcohol to persons under the age of 21 resulting in seven misdemeanor arrests via summons.
The second vice operation targeted those engaged in prostitution activity throughout the city. Police say this operation yielded the arrest of an additional seven suspects, bringing the total number of arrests for both operations to fourteen.
