Several suspects have been arrested in an ongoing investigation into prostitution in Pulaski County, authorities said Wednesday.

Little Rock and North Little Rock police records show at least nine women ranging in age from 19 to 37 were arrested Tuesday and Wednesday on charges including prostitution. One man was also jailed on a charge of third-degree promoting prostitution.

North Little Rock police reports show six women and the male suspect were arrested at 500 W. 29th St., which is a Quality Inn & Suites Hotel. The six women, and a seventh who was arrested at a different North Little Rock hotel, had ads posted on Backpage.com and were contacted by undercover officers to set up meetings. The male suspect offered a sheriff's deputy money in exchange for a sexual act, according to that arrest report.

A Little Rock log book of arrests showed two women were arrested Tuesday night at Little Rock hotels on charges including prostitution.

Spokesmen from the Little Rock and North Little Rock police departments directed questions to the FBI. An FBI spokesman said it was an "ongoing" investigation and no further information could be released.

Little Rock Police Department spokesman Lt. Sidney Allen said he did not have any details on the arrests made by his agency but that more arrests are possible.

"That will be an effort we'll continue to do to get quality-of-life crimes down," Allen said Wednesday.

Only two of the suspects remained in the Pulaski County jail later Wednesday afternoon.
