Greenville County deputies arrested 27 people in a 3-day prostitution sting on July 17, 18 and 23.

Lt. Ty Miller said the individuals were arrested after they approached undercover officers, either agreeing to sex in exchange for money or attempting to pay for a sexual encounter.

Miller said all of the suspects were taken into custody and charged with one count of misdemeanor prostitution.

If convicted, the penalty for a first offense is a $200 fine or 30 days in jail, Miller said.

Miller said the operation also led to other charges, including driving under suspension, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
