CMPD Cracking Down on Prostitution in NODA

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department announced yesterday they are cracking down on drugs, prostitution and johns in the NODA area of Charlotte, specifically near the intersection of 36th St & The Plaza.

Police say their attempt to curb criminal activity in this area using multiple resources (including helpful citizens & undercover stings) has helped drop the crime rate in the CMPD Eastway Division and across the city. 

CMPD said within a 2 month time period, they have made 20+ arrests and obtained search warrants for 3 suspected crime ridden homes.  During the raids, they found cash, drugs and guns at all three houses.   If you look at my mugshot slideshow, you will notice a much higher rate of prostitution arrests in the past few months.
