KWTX is reporting that 10 more Central Texans have been busted. The suspects included a now former Waco ISD educator, a couple of soldiers, six retired soldiers/military personnel, and a U.S. Postal Service employee.

In addition, according to authorities, one of the suspects was found to be in possession of a gun, and yet another had counterfeit cash.

It seems investigators placed ads for prostitutes on social media sites known for this type of thing, then deputies waited for buyers to contact them to meet and pay for sex.

Names of the suspects are: Aaron Johnson, Robert White, Jr., Derick O’Rea, Tony Shelton, Myrese Jennings, Keon Hill, Terence Roberson, Jason Morrow-Gibson, Michael Rizzo, and Norris Thomas, Jr.

It seems there's a sex trafficking story every few months, yet people are still looking for sex in all the wrong places. Usually the story comes out of McLennan County, but this time Bell County has made some arrests. In fact, it seems that Sheriff McNamara sent people down to help Bell County set up the sting operation.

Let's hope Bell and surrounding counties continue to set these stings up. Soon, people will hopefully realize it'll be safer to stay home and play video games instead of playing games on prostitution sites.
