AUGUSTA, Ga. -- From Crime Team 12, Richmond County deputies arrest 10 men for soliciting sex with officer at a neighborhood park.
The arrests took place at Pendleton King Park and near the Augusta Canal. Two of the men were arrested near Lake Olmstead near the Canal.
Investigators say neighbors complained of people having sex in the park, even during day time hours. The sex acts, according to investigators, took place in public restrooms and even in the nearby woods.
One investigator says he was offered money while other suspects just asked for sex. The suspects ages range from the 40's up to the 80's.
A similar sting at Pendleton King Park took place in the summer of 2004. Ten men were also arrested at that time.
