McHenry County Figures into Aurora Prostitution Sting

Missing my attention until a re-write of it was posted by the Northwest Herald and discovered by a Friend of McHenry County Blog was the January 13th press release below from the Aurora Police Department.

In the sting a State Policeman dressed as a woman assisted. The McHenry County angle is the prostitution arrest of Li Xia Sun, 47, of the 0-99 block of Deer Creek Ct., Lake in the Hills.


The Aurora Police Department’s Special Operations Group charged seven men and four women with sex-related crimes after a two day sting on January 4 and 5.

Six of the men were arrested after they answered a phony adult oriented advertisement posted by Aurora Police on an internet website.

The men then allegedly came to a home in Aurora where they offered an undercover female police officer money in exchange for sex.
