Were any men arrested in the prostitution scandal? Was a certain business investigated?

No men were arrested during last year’s prostitution sting that set off a scandal within the Wilmington Police Department, said police spokeswoman Lucy Crockett.

Police have not disclosed details about which escort services had been the target of the sting, and Crockett again declined to release such information on Tuesday, citing an ongoing State Bureau of Investigation probe.

Several officers fell into hot water following the sting on March 2011, in which now former members of the Narcotics Enforcement Unit reportedly violated departmental guidelines for documenting cash expenditures and drinking alcohol.

Two weeks ago, local top law enforcement officials requested an independent investigation by the SBI to ensure the officers did not break any laws during the sting.
