Police arrested three men Thursday during an undercover prostitution sting that targeted the southwest area of Lancaster City.  Undercover female officers posed as prostitutes during the detail after area residents and business owners complained about the illegal activity.

Thomas Eugene Eisenberger, 57, of New Providence, Joel Michael Arnold, 44, of Manheim and Kevin Leslie Cowan, 21, of Lancaster, are all charged with criminal solicitation of a prostitute.

Authorities say the men offered money to the undercover officers to perform sexual acts.

Police will be conducting similar stings targeting prostitution over the next several months.

    isn't it demeaning for a police woman to be asked to dress like a prostitute. And what about the female officers who didn't make the cut! Maybe not cute enough.
