A sting conducted by the Pismo Beach Police Department Sunday resulted in the arrests of three women and two men on charges of prostitution.
During the investigation, undercover officers set up meetings with suspected prostitutes who advertised themselves online. Once the women had arrived and disclosed the details of the exchange, they were taken to jail.
Police arrested Sacramento residents Lawrence Denley, 19, and Cedrick Hudson, 18, on suspicion of aiding and abetting prostitution.
Police charged Jazzmin McDowell, 19, of Sacramento, Shawntee Davison, 27, from San Jose and Rebecca Rand, 20, of Fairfield for prostitution.
