ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police are looking for people paying for sex. The department launched a sting this week called "Operation Curb Side."
KRQE-TV reports police arrested 30 people Thursday including a husband and wife in search of prostitutes.
Police say suspected johns approached undercover officers about every five to 15 minutes during their investigation. Some were willing to pay with cash and others wanted to pay with drugs.
Police say it's part of a bigger problem that includes drug abuse. Detectives say most prostitutes are drug addicts in need of serious help.
Albuquerque police say they plan to continue the sex sting throughout the summer.
