REAL NEWS from the Anderson Independent Mail:
“It’s hard to work an operation when there’s a hooker down the block telling everybody the ‘po-po’s’ out tonight,” said Sgt. Mike Binninger.
A second location, this one near the corner of West Whitner and Boyd Street, was soon chosen and the decoy was dropped off.
The same 12 team members crouched in the shadows, some as close as an arm’s length.
Within minutes, a man had approached the hooker he didn’t know. This time, the man approached on foot, and offered her $3 for service.
He was handcuffed and in the back of a patrol car within 90 seconds, and she was back on her corner, ready for another round.
By 11:30, the operation had ended because several members of the team were called to another location.
