PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Police Bureau's Sex Trafficking Unit arrested 10 men during an undercover mission last week.
From Sept. 5 to Sept. 9, investigators posted online ads on known sex trafficking websites. Ten men contacted undercover police officers to arrange payment for sexual acts. A Portland hotel assisted the investigators in that part of the mission.

Nine of the 10 men were given citations to appear in court at a later time. The other, 38-year-old Justin Fincannon of Portland, was booked into jail for distribution and possession of methamphetamine, in addition to patronizing a prostitute.
