A 59-year-old man from Saint-Antoine, N.B.,  a 50-year-old man from Dieppe, N.B., and a 46-year-old man from Lotbinière, Que., were arrested separately last week in in the Dufferin and St. George Street areas of Moncton, N.B.

“The Codiac Regional RCMP is actively working to stop ‘Johns’ from attempting to buy services from sex trade workers in public places,” said Const. Curtis McCann of the Codiac Regional RCMP in a statement.

“The public can help us by calling police or Crime Stoppers if they see activity in their neighbourhood that could be related to the soliciting of sexual services. A description of vehicles and licence plate numbers will help investigators.”
