Windsor Locks police arrest 11 men for soliciting prostitution

Windsor Locks, Conn. (WTNH)–Eleven men, including a Springfield, Mass. police officer, were busted by Windsor Locks police in what is being called “Operation Cupid.”

The following people have been arrested:

  • Springfield Police Officer John Wadlegger, 42, of Agawam, Mass.
