ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (AP) - Two men have been arrested on charges of having sex with underage girls, following a human trafficking investigation.

The Johnson City Press reports (https://bit.ly/2pkLEi9 ) that the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation charged 26-year-old Robelio E. Flores-Rivera and 34-year-old Adan O. Vasquez-Rodriguez on Monday.

Arrest warrants say Flores-Rivera paid a 14-year-old girl $60 and Vasquez-Rodriguez paid a 17-year-old girl $200 for sex at an Elizabethton motel.

The men were being held in the Carter County Jail on $50,000 bail each and were arraigned Tuesday. Their next court appearance is scheduled for Friday. It’s unclear if they have lawyers.

The TBI is continuing to investigate.
