HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - Six were arrested in Houma on Wednesday during an undercover prostitution operation.

Officers say they were targeting "Johns" in west Houma by using an undercover female officer. Six suspects were arrested within four hours for soliciting the undercover officer, police say.

Michael Ingram, 55, David Harris, 61, Jeffery Lebouef, 24, Mark Hue, 46, and Christina Walcott, 38, were arrested for soliciting for prostitutes.

Jimmie Guidry, 50, was arrested on solicitation and drug charges.

All suspects were charged accordingly.

Wednesday's bust is the latest in Houma's attempt to crack down on prostitution. The arrests come two weeks after a similar sting in Houma on May 13 targeting suspected prostitutes. Five suspects were arrested within three hours during the operations, officers say.
