SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Four people are in custody after law enforcement authorities carried out an investigation against a suspected prostitution operation.

The Sioux Falls Police Department says undercover investigators answered a prostitution-related online advertisement Tuesday and arranged to meet with two women. Officers then detained the women and learned they were being forced into prostitution.

Police say the individuals suspected of pimping the women were later arrested. Authorities say the charges against the 25-year-old man and 32-year-old woman include first-degree human trafficking.

During the operation, officers searched a Sioux Falls home and arrested two other people. The charges against the 28-year-old woman and 24-year-old man include possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The four people who were arrested are from Sioux Falls and are due in court Wednesday.
