Police say eight men have been arrested in an undercover prostitution sting in Central Falls, Rhode Island.

Three female police officers from jurisdictions outside the city posed as prostitutes and were placed in high traffic areas this week.

One man was arrested on a charge of procurement of sexual conduct for a fee.

Seven men were charged with soliciting from a motor vehicle for indecent purposes.

All eight men were from Rhode Island and ranged in age from 38 to 64. They are due back in court next month.

Since May, Central Falls police have charged 23 men and seven women in undercover sting operations.
