Dozens of people who claimed to have traveled to the New York-New Jersey area in the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl were arrested for prostitution around the site of the game, according to the report Tuesday from Marina Lopes of Reuters.

Lopes reports that the crackdown on prostitution resulted in the arrest of 45 people and the recovery of 16 juveniles -- ranging in age from 13 to 17 -- by FBI, local and state law enforcement agencies leading the effort. Many of the children had been reported missing by families and were recovered in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Approximately 3,000 law enforcement agents had been deployed to the area ahead of the Super Bowl with the specific goal of targeting the crime.

According to the report, classified listings had indicated numerous "Super Bowl specials" in northern New Jersey that offered services at $50 for 30 minutes and $100 for an hour.
