— Twenty-seven people were arrested this past week as part of a prostitution sting in Stillwater.

The Special Projects Unit of the Stillwater Police Department joined with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics for the sting, nicknamed “Operation Dragon Slayer.”

During the two-day operation, law enforcement officials arrested 10 women and 17 men, said Mark Woodward, spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.

Woodward said the women will be charged for engaging in prostitution, 11 of the men will be charged with soliciting prostitution and the other six for facilitating it.

None of the charges had been filed in the Payne County Courthouse on Tuesday.

Two Oklahoma State University students were among those arrested. OSU Director of Communications Gary Shutt said there have been no decisions made concerning the students' futures at OSU.
