More than half a dozen people have been arrested in Moreno Valley for their involvement in a suspected prostitution operation.

Police said the operation was running out of a home on the 12000 block of Graham Street. On Aug. 31, Moreno Valley Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing team arrested nine people in connection with the operation after serving a search warrant.

The prostitution house was staffed with multiple women and a manager, who also acted as a security guard. Angel De La Rosa, 30, was arrested on pimping and related charges. Six others were arrested for attempting to purchase sex from an undercover officer acting as a prostitute, and a woman working at the location was also arrested. Police did not release details about the ninth person arrested.

If you have any information about this or any other prostitution operations, you're urged to contact Moreno Valley authorities at (951) 486-6932.
