Multiple agencies throughout Alameda County conducted a sexually-exploited children recovery and prostitution out call operation in Newark and made eight arrests Thursday, a Newark police sergeant said. Thursday’s operation was conducted at the Motel 6 at 5601 Mowry Ave.

by the Alameda County Vice Enforcement Team from 4 to 10 p.m., Sgt. Manuel DeSerpa said. Officers would place calls to known pimps and prostitutes, luring them to the motel for services, DeSerpa said. Seven females were arrested for misdemeanor solicitation of prostitution and one male was arrested for felony charges of pimping and pandering in the operation, the sergeant said.

One of the females received an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance, he said. No children were recovered in the operation, DeSerpa said. Agencies that took part in the operation included the Alameda County district attorney’s office, probation department and sheriff’s office, Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control, the FBI, South Alameda County Major Crimes Task Force, and the Emeryville, Hayward, Newark, Oakland, Berkeley, Union City and University of California at Berkeley police departments.
