SUMMIT COUNTY (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – 12 people from areas throughout Northeast Ohio were arrested earlier this week following an undercover investigation by the Summit County Sheriff’s office.

Officers say they went undercover to make contact with the suspects through websites which advertised sexual services.

With the assistance of the Copley Police department and Cuyahoga Regional Human Trafficking Task Force, authorities were able to make the arrests at an undisclosed hotel in Summit County on charges including soliciting, possession of methamphetamines, and promoting prostitution.
