“The project goal was to identify and arrest offenders seeking sexual services from females under the age of 18,” HRPS said in a release.

Those arrested have been charged with communicating for the purpose of obtaining consideration of sexual services from a person under 18.

HRPS did not release the identity of the accused due to an ongoing investigation.
