Fourteen people, including a priest from Port Charlotte, were arrested in a prostitution sting in Fort Myers on Thursday, police said.

Undercover female officers with the Fort Myers Police Department posed as street prostitutes at Hanson Street and Cleveland Avenue, or U.S. 41. They pulled off the sting after receiving complaints from residents in the neighborhood, police said.

Among those arrested was Demetrios Kavouras, 69, of Cape Coral, who is a priest at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Port Charlotte, according to police spokeswoman Maureen Buice.
