The RCMP said the arrests are part of its continuing effort to curb street prostitution.

The men were arrested separately: A 59-year-old Saint-Antoine man, a 50-year-old Dieppe man, a 46-year-old Lotbinière, Q.C. man.

The RCMP said:

The Codiac Regional RCMP is actively working to stop 'Johns' from attempting to buy services from sex trade workers in public places," says Cst. Curtis McCann of the Codiac Regional RCMP. "The public can help us by calling police or Crime Stoppers if they see activity in their neighbourhood that could be related to the soliciting of sexual services. A description of vehicles and license plate numbers will help investigators."

The three men have been released and will appear in Moncton Provincial Court, January 17th.
