Clearwater, Florida -- Eight men ranging in age from 21 to 58 were arrested by Clearwater Police late Friday and early today as part of an ongoing crackdown on prostitution in the East Gateway area of the city.

Each of the eight was charged with soliciting prostitution and taken to the Pinellas County Jail.

Four were from Clearwater, three were from Largo, and one was from St. Petersburg.

Clearwater Police Chief Tony Holloway has said the crackdowns will continue until both sides of the prostitution equation -- johns and the prostitutes themselves -- get the message that the activity will not be tolerated in Clearwater.
