Texas authorities say a precinct chief was among over a dozen people arrested in an undercover prostitution sting operation.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said its Organized Crime Unit, in cooperation with Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance (HTRA), conducted the sting operation Wednesday evening at a local hotel.

The sheriff’s office said 14 suspects in total were arrested for solicitation of prostitution. Among those was Brian Harris of the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office.

Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap told the outlet, “We hold our deputies to the highest standard,”  adding that Harris’ termination is “effective immediately.”

The sheriff’s office wrote in a news release, “We are sending a message that we are not going to tolerate this activity in our community. We will arrest and charge those who engage in this illicit act. We will also continue to identify those who have been forced into trafficking by rescuing them from their situations and connecting them with services to help with their recovery.”
