A police captain in Seattle was among the five men arrested this week in a prostitution string, reports say.

Capt. Randal Woolery, a member of the Seattle Police Department for 31 years, was placed on administrative leave following his arrest Wednesday in north Seattle, KING-TV reported.

The station reported not being able to reach Woolery for comment. An email Saturday seeking comment from Fox News wasn't immediately returned.

“Seattle police arrested a 53-year-old SPD employee last night in an undercover Vice operation in North Seattle,” Sgt. Sean Whitcomb was quoted as saying by KIRO-TV. The other four men weren't identified.
