Moncton, New Brunswick – The Codiac Regional RCMP has arrested nine men for attempting to buy services from sex trade workers, as part of its continuing effort to curb prostitution. Police were in the area of Dufferin and St. George Streets in Moncton on June 28, 2017, during the day and early evening.
Those arrested range in age from 19 to 74 and are from seven different communities:
- 19-year-old, Moncton
- 68-year-old, Moncton
- 66-year-old, Shediac
- 55-year-old, Dieppe
- 72-year-old, Dieppe
- 74-year-old, Hillsborough
- 62-year-old, Midgic
- 47-year-old, Sussex
- 57-year-old, Riverview
“The Codiac RCMP is actively working to stop “johns” from attempting to buy services from sex trade workers in public places,” says Inspector Luc Breton, Codiac Regional RCMP. “The public can help us by calling police or Crime Stoppers if they see activity in their neighbourhoods that could be related to soliciting sexual services. It especially helps if they’re able to provide descriptions of vehicles and licence plate numbers.”
All of the men arrested were later released with a promise to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on August 25, 2017.
