Twelve arrests were made Thursday in a Lansing police prostitution sting operation.
The targets of the sting were "Johns", men who solicit sex.
Police officers posing as prostitutes walked along Kalamazoo St between Larch Street and Mifflin throughout the day and evening hours.
"The successful results of the sting send a loud an clear message that prostitution will not be tolerated in the city of Lansing" said Police Chief Mike Yankowski.
The suspects were arrested on charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, but all are facing solicitation charges.
Nine vehicles were also seized.
