Three men and five women were arrested in Lincoln over the weekend in a joint police detail targeting human trafficking. 

Fernando Paz, 33, of Omaha was arrested for electronic child enticement after he communicated online with an investigator posing as a 15-year-old girl. Paz agreed to travel to Lincoln to pay for sex with the girl, according to police.

A 36-year-old Lincoln man was arrested for pandering and tampering with physical evidence. And another 49-year-old Lincoln man was arrested for soliciting a prostitute. 

None of the people arrested had been charged as of Monday afternoon.

In total, eight women were contacted during the operation and five were arrested. 

Police said they are providing resources to the women and working to determine whether any of them were victims of human trafficking.

The police detail included officers from the Lincoln, Omaha and Council Bluffs, Iowa, police departments, Douglas County Sheriff's Office and the FBI.
