Former MATA CEO Ron Garrison arrested in prostitution sting with 41 other people

Ron Garrison, the now former CEO of MATA, was arrested during a three day TBI prostitution sting in Memphis.

Garrison was arrested for seeking sex from an adult prostitute.

A total of 42 people were arrested during “Operation Someone Like Me.”

Ads were posted online and for sex with prostitutes and received more than 500 responses.

Eight people were seeking sex with minors, two wanted sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Agents answered ads and two juvenile trafficking victims were recovered.

ICE is helping with the investigation as several people were in the country illegally.

Garrison first said Thursday he was resigning due to health reasons.

He had been the CEO since 2014.
