Carson City, NV (KXNT) - Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford announced on Tuesday that investigators from the Office of the Attorney General led a sting with help from Homeland Security Investigations, Clark County School Police and Las Vegas City Marshalls, which resulted in two arrests last week.

Bronson Hayes, 50 and Sergio Bautista, 35, were arrested on March 23rd after negotiating sexual services with a decoy. Both were charged with Soliciting a Child and Luring a Person Under 16 with a Computer to Commit a Sex Act, and booked in the Clark County Detention Center

“Anyone seeking to engage in sex trafficking with minor must be brought to justice and I am proud of the work our investigators and partners did in this operation, said AG Ford. “My office will always work to investigate individuals involved in these abhorrent and unlawful actions.”

Details of the sting, and how the pair landed in handcuffs, were not given.
