Texas Constable Arrested With 13 Others In Undercover Prostitution Sting

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in Texas conducted an undercover prostitution sting operation at a local hotel Wednesday evening that resulted in 14 arrests, including one local precinct chief.

  • Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap said, “We hold our deputies to the highest standard” and that Harris was fired “effective immediately.”
  • In Texas, county constables serve as licensed peace officers and perform various law enforcement functions, including issuing traffic citations, according to the Texas Association of Counties website.
  • The sheriff’s office’s Organized Crime Unit worked with the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance (HTRA) on the operation that led to the arrests for solicitation of prostitution, a state felony.
  • “We are sending a message that we are not going to tolerate this activity in our community,” the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said. “We will arrest and charge those who engage in this illicit act. We will also continue to identify those who have been forced into trafficking by rescuing them from their situations and connecting them with services to help with their recovery.”
