Original: Three men are in jail after they were arrested Thursday in an undercover sex sting involving minors.

Kalcey Reid Wike, 46, of West Fargo; Jeffrey James Wold, 58, of Fargo; and Christopher Dane Daggett, 26, of Moorhead were arrested for the offense of patronizing a minor for commercial sexual activity, according to the Fargo Police Department.

Police said the undercover operation targeted people who wanted to engage in sexual activity with kids.

There were ads placed in several websites people often visit in order to pay for sex. More than 60 people responded to the ads that law enforcement created during a six hour period, according to police.

Wike, Daggett, and Wold were the men from that group who allegedly took the most steps to meet with a minor at a local hotel for sex.

The Fargo Police Department’s operation was held in conjunction with the North Dakota Human Trafficking Task Force.

Daggett’s mug shot was not immediately available.
