NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a law enforcement sting timed to coincide with the Super Bowl resulted in more than 350 arrests of men seeking to hire prostitutes and more than a dozen sex traffickers.

They say the crackdown stretched from January 23 through Sunday, resulting in 373 arrests. A spokesman for the Cook County Sheriff's Office in Illinois said the operation involved 27 agencies in 15 states that tried to curb the demand for prostitution.

The spokesman — Benjamin Breit (Breet) — says the arrests included the Los Angeles Police Department bringing charges against a pimp who drove from Arizona to Los Angeles to collect what he thought was a new recruit. He says the St. Paul, Minn. police arrested a pimp who had held two 18-year-old girls against their will.
