'Operation March Sadness' results in over 100 arrests


MyNews13.com - A six-day undercover prostitution investigation has resulted in the arrest of more than 100 people in Polk County.  

"Operation March Sadness" focused on those who advertise prostitution services in online ads and identifying victims of human trafficking. The sting was conducted by undercover sheriff's detectives with help from the state attorneys office. 

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said several suspects chatted with undercover deputies online. The suspects then showed up at agrred upon location for sex. Judd said among those arrested were an architect, a medical student and a US Air Force captain. One man showed up thinking he was meeting a 14-year-old girl for sex, Judd said. 

In most cases, this would serve as a perfect opportunity to roast the Polk County Sheriff's Office for unleashing a bevy of corny March Madness puns to drum up public interest. In this case, however, the work done targeting human trafficking deserves to be commended. 

That said, we have collected some of the best "March Sadness" references to roll in, complete with a scoreboard.
