According to allegations provided in an arrest warrant:

On Oct. 6, a special agent with the Texas DPS Criminal Investigations Divisions conducted a one-day operation to target people attempting to solicit prostitutes online. The purpose was to combat human trafficking.

"Operation Nooner" was conducted at a hotel in Wichita Falls.

Justin McCracken responded to an ad and agreed to pay money in exchange for sexual acts. The special agent monitored text messages between McCracken and the undercover officer in which McCracken agreed to pay money for sexual favors.
