Police arrested six men as part of a prostitution sting in the Brunswick area on March 24, according to Brunswick police.

Charges against at least one of the men were later dropped, so their names have been removed from this article.

The arrests were the result of a joint operation involving officers from Brunswick, South Portland, Gorham and Falmouth, as well as the Greater Portland Coalition Against Sex Trafficking and Exploitation and agents from the Department of Homeland Security.

All six men were charged with “engaging a prostitute,” a Class E misdemeanor. Class E crimes are punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

The six men charged have court dates on June 21.
