Monroe police arrest 7 in prostitution sting

Posted: Updated:

Monroe police say that they arrested five prostitutes and two pimps in a prostitution sting last week.

According to police, people would use Craigslist and other similar sites to find advertisements and ask to meet the alleged prostitutes in Monroe.

Plain-clothes officers posing as customers say they used the website in their investigation.

The suspects were released on their own recognizance and will be arraigned Sept. 22.
