Indeed, officers from Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Gloucester City, Mount Ephraim, Runnemede, and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office participated.

First, investigators found suspects through alleged online ads, per the news. Later, posing as “johns,” the cops made meetings with each woman. Next, when meeting in person, the two would allegedly agree on a sex act for money, per the press. Consequently, the officer would pay. But before consummating the deal, the woman would be arrested, per the media.

Despite publicizing the arrests, authorities have not released any names. Furthermore, law enforcement has not disclosed where the meetings took place. Notwithstanding participation of five towns, seven arrests were in Bellmawr, one in Gloucester City, and one in Runnemede. Finally, except for two women who had warrants, all were released pending court, per nj dot com.
