By Joe Jackson
MAYFIELD, KY - A two-day sting operation conducted by the Investigations Unit with the Graves County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in the arrest of eight men on prostitution charges.
Investigators began the operation known as “Catch a John” on Wednesday by posting an ad on a well-known website. Investigators immediately began receiving phone calls from men asking for sex in exchange for money.
A female detective, acting in an undercover capacity, spoke with the men and made arrangements to meet them at a local hotel. During the investigation, the “Johns” made agreements to pay the female detective in exchange for sexual acts. The men were taken into custody and then lodged in the Graves County Jail and charged with soliciting prostitution.
Those arrested were 24-year old Mycong Le of Mayfield, 64-year-old David Sullivan of Mayfield, 23-year-old Kyle Steven Ditty of Milton, PA, 56-year-old Gary Grubbs of Glasgow, KY, 47-year-old Anthony Dalton of Paducah, 43-year-old Kevin Skinner of Kevil, 51-year-old Albert Hester of Russellville, AR and 33-year-old Brian Wimberley of Paris, TN.
