Four soldiers from Fort Hood were arrested during a massive prostitution sting in Bell County, Texas that arrested a total of thirty people.

One of the soldiers, Tyler Willison, was found in possession of a knife, six strands of rope, duct tape and a body bag at the time of his arrest.

When he entered the room where the sting occurred he was in possession of the rope; the other items were found in his car. He told deputies he brought the rope to the room because he had a bonding fetish.

According to police, the arrests were made during two sting operations that took place six days apart, with 15 people being arrested in each sting.

The ages of those arrested ranged from 17-57 and one was arrested in possession of a firearm.

“As long as there continues to be a problem, we are going to continue operations like this,” Sherrif Eddy Lange said to KSWO. “So, guys, if you’re out there on the dark web or even on the regular web and you’re thinking about this, you better be thinking, ‘ hey, is it Chief Mitchell’s guys or is it the sheriff’s department on the other end?’ You’ll never know what’s behind that closed door.”
