Agents detain eight in prostitution case

Eight men and a woman have been detained in a  case involving prostitution of minors.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said the men range in age from 54 to 72. The arrests were in the community of Los Santos.

The woman, 27, was arrested last week on the allegation that she was pimping a girl, 14, and another, 16, who lived in her home. Agents then began rounding up the customers, who paid from 10,000 to 20,000 colons for the sexual services, agents said. That’s about $18.50 to $37.
