A police sting targeting customers of prostitution in downtown Reno has left five men with solicitation charges.

Officers with Reno Police Department's Regional Enforcement Team say they targeted prospective customers by posting an ad on a popular website.

Within minutes, the team was fielding dozens of phone calls and texts.

Brian Starbuck and Jacob Rogers of Reno were both cited for solicitation, along with Michael Lytle of Sparks.

Alejandro Garcia-Aguilar of Veracruz, Mexico and Carlos Gonzalez-Hernandez of Sparks were arrested.

SET also conducted an operation targeting women posting on web sites which cater to the customers of prostitution.

During this portion of the operation three women negotiated sex acts in exchange for money with an undercover detective. Two females qualified for citations, while the third did not and was arrested.

SET has not released the names of the three women, they say, in an effort to provide avenues to escape the prostitution lifestyle.

The charges can carry a penalty up to six months in jail and a fine up to $1000.

Anyone having information that could help are being encouraged to contact the Reno Police Department at 334-2115, or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
