Sumter, SC (WLTX) - Eight people have been arrested following a prostitution sting in Sumter.

Sumter police and Sumter County deputies say they conducted their operation on Thursday after receiving tips that women were soliciting for sex in the South Sumter area.

The sting worked by having undercover officers poses as prostitutes and "johns" near Manning Avenue.

Officers charged four of the suspects with prostitution, and four with solicitation.
