They and ten others were arrested after they went to a Willoughby hotel, expecting to meet a 20-year-old woman, according to police

Two Beachwood men were among those arrested during a prostitution sting by Willoughby Police Department.

On Feb. 21 and 22, the Willoughby Police Department conducted an operation targeting the customers of prostitution.

Future operations of this nature will be planned as needed, Willoughby Police said. A cooperating Willoughby motel was used during the investigation.
