14 arrested in connection to prostitution ring

Posted: Updated:
COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Fourteen people have been arrested in connection with a huge Midstate prostitution ring.

It all started with calls to police about prostitution ads online.

Police set up two undercover stings. Undercover officers responded to the posts and then met up with the suspects to prove they were selling sex.

The Herald-Citizen says police arrested 10 women and four men. They are still looking for two more suspects.

Police in Putnam County say prostitution is a relatively new and growing crime in Cookeville.
