SARASOTA -- Friday the 13th was especially unlucky for four people snared in a police undercover investigation targeting prostitution in Sarasota.

Sarasota police said the four men were arrested Friday in the 1600 block of North Tamiami Trail during the operation, which targeted "johns" soliciting prostitutes.

Two of the men are from Bradenton, one is from Sarasota and the one is from Odessa, police said. They are each charged with solicitation.
