On Tuesday, February 5, 2013 detectives from the Regional Street Enforcement Team conducted an undercover prostitution operation targeting people attempting to hire a female posing as a prostitute on West 4th St. in downtown Reno.

An undercover female officer walked on the 4th St. corridor in downtown Reno and was ultimately approached by eight men who solicited her for sex.

All eight men were contacted and issued misdemeanor citations for solicitation for prostitution. The pre-designated bail/fine for solicitation for prostitution is $500.00. Subjects cited/arrested for solicitation for prostitution are also required to submit to blood testing for sexually transmitted diseases.

The Regional Street Enforcement Team would like to remind subjects’ considering engaging in acts of prostitution that prostitution is illegal in Washoe County and Clark County. There are other significant risks associated with engaging in acts of illegal prostitution to include the spread of sexually transmitted disease and a greater risk of being victimized during a robbery or fraud by an associate of the prostitute.

The following men were cited:
Braulio Villalobos-Martinez 23 years of age, Sparks, Nv. resident
Ibrahim Akbar 53 years of age, Elk Grove, Ca. resident
Lacy Raymond 69 years of age, Fernley, Nv. resident

Israel Campus-Medina 37 years of age, Reno, Nv. resident
Joseph Carbajal 21 years of age, Reno, Nv. resident
