Twenty seven people, including a Sussex County man and woman, have been arrested following a joint operation initiative targeting prostitution in New Castle County.

The initiative, which was a joint partnership of the Delaware State Police and the New Castle County Police, took place on Thursday, June 11, and Friday, June 12 and targeted the areas of Route 9 and Route 13 in New Castle.

Police say the areas were targeted in response to numerous citizen complaints of prostitution and other quality of life crimes that have been occurring and focused on prostitutes and the men who patronized them.

31-year-old Kimberley Porter of Delmar and 38-year-old Jayson Blauch of Lewes were among the people arrested; to see a full list of everyone arrested, go to our website at delaware1059.com.
