At the direction of Sheriff Chad Bianco, Temecula Sheriff’s Special Teams have been working several ongoing vice investigations in the city of Temecula.  Over the last eight days, Temecula Special Teams focused on public restrooms/toilets located within retail stores and businesses in the city of Temecula.  These public restrooms/toilets have generated several complaints from the public, where males have been observed loitering to engage in a sexual act.  The term for this type of sexual encounter is known as “Toe-Tap or Toe-Tapping,” where a male will try to initiate contact with another male by moving his foot beyond the stall divide and tap his foot to engage in a sexual encounter.  During this operation, Temecula Special Teams utilized undercover deputies to enter public restrooms to conduct undercover investigations to engage/observe illegal acts.  The following 10 people were arrested and booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center for the charges listed below.
