14 Arrested In Anti-Prostitution Sweep In Pittsburg

PITTSBURG (CBS SF) -- Pittsburg police arrested 14 suspected pimps and prostitutes Friday in an anti-prostitution sweep.

Police were not releasing any names or details about the investigation.

"One of the things we're obviously looking for is to see if there are any victims of human trafficking," Pittsburg police Capt. Ron Raman told the Contra Costa Times. "Obviously this is a good way for us to find females who are being victimized."

Raman said no other outside agencies were involved in the operation. It was part of a statewide effort to combat human trafficking.
