A Giles County man was one of 11 men arrested and charged for Patronizing Prostitution in Spring Hill.

James Talley, age 37, was booked in the Maury County Jail this week after a two-day undercover operation by Special Agents with the TBI Human Trafficking Unit and detectives with the Spring Hill Police Department.

Over a two-day period beginning January 9th, as part of an undercover investigation aimed at addressing human trafficking in Spring Hill, authorities placed several decoy advertisements on websites known to be linked to commercial sex.

The focus of the operation was to identify individuals seeking to engage in commercial sex acts with minors and adults.

Those participating in the operation included the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Spring Hill Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Office of 22nd District Attorney General Brent Cooper.
