 It wasn't a fun Valentine's Day weekend for three Treasure Coast men.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office arrested the men Friday night as part of what they called 'Operation Cupid Overload.'

36-year old Miguel Maldonado of Vero Beach, 45-year old Michael Cooper, and 39-year old Eric Burns of Port St. Lucie each planned to give cocaine and cash to a person at a hotel in exchange for sex, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators said after the men handed over drugs and money deputies moved in and arrested them.

All three were charged with Delivery of Cocaine, Possession of Cocaine, and Solicitation of Prostitution.

The sheriff's office did not identify the hotel where the arrests were made.
