Lancaster City Police arrested five people following a 3-week undercover prostitution investigation.
Police said 25-year-old Lewis Awa of Lancaster, 30-year-old Hector Baez of Lancaster, 45-year-old Michelle McLemore of Narvon, 52-year-old Stephen Sharpe of Lancaster and 56-year-old Steven White of Elizabethtown were all arrested after agreeing to exchanging sexual acts for money.
They were unaware that they were making the deal with an undercover officer.
According to officials, their prostitution investigation is not over; they've been receiving complaints from people living and working in the city who have seen prostitution activities occurring in plain view of the public.
Police plan to continue to look into it over the next several months.
