FIVE suspected members of an online-vice syndicate were arrested early on Tuesday morning at a Lavender Street hotel, police said in a statement yesterday.
The suspects comprised two men and three women, aged between 19 and 29. Two of the women are believed to be prostitutes.
Acting on information, the police mounted a raid on the hotel, seizing $1,250 in cash and items such as mobile phones and several notebooks with transaction records.
The statement said that the syndicate is believed to have advertised sexual services on an Internet website where potential customers could book services before proceeding to a designated hotel to complete the transaction.
Investigations are ongoing.
