BATON ROUGE - Law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge said the sex trade has moved off of street corners and onto the internet, forcing them to adapt to the times if they want to make arrests.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies arrested ten people at a hotel off Essen Lane on Friday.

Eight were charged with prostitution, while two face gun and drug charges.

Casey Hicks, a spokesperson with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, said sex workers and traffickers are setting up deals with clients through social media before meeting them at local hotels.

News 2's Sarah Rosario will have more on this story tonight at 5 p.m.
