The Layton Police Department has worked several sting operations targeting prostitutes working in Layton.  Yesterday, detectives targeted those who patronize prostitutes during a reverse sting operation.

Detectives received between 15 and 20 telephone calls from men wanting to set up a date with a prostitute.  Five local men showed up for the date and four of them were arrested for Patronizing a Prostitute, a class B misdemeanor.  The fifth man left before detectives could establish the probable cause needed to make an arrest.


The following men were arrested during yesterday’s sting:


  • James Scheidel (47) of Bountiful
  • Jonathan Harman (34) of Bountiful
  • Joshua Tanner (25) of Kaysville
