  • A 28-year-old Millsboro man was one of several suspects arrested on May 23 in a New Castle County prostitution sting.
    According to the New Castle County Police Department, Carlos Paralta, who lives on Iron Branch Road in Millsboro, was arrested and charged with solicitation.
    The NCCPD, Delaware State Police, and Wilmington Police joined forces to address chronic prostitution issues occurring on Maryland Avenue at Canby Park in Wilmington, New Castle Avenue at West Avenue in New Castle, and North Dupont Highway in the area of Leedom Estates and Manor Park.
    Police said as a result of intelligence gathering and pleas for help from the residents of New Castle County, a team of officers from each agency responded to their respective jurisdictional areas on May 23 and began targeting “Johns” who solicited undercover female officers for sex and drugs. Throughout the operation, 10 women were arrested and charged with prostitution and 13 men were arrested and charged with solicitation, including Paralta. Police did not specify at which location Paralta was arrested.
