Four men and two women are in jail in DeSoto Parish...linked to a prostitution ring that operated out of a trailer. Police arrested Ana Lira and Keyla Cedeno after an undercover investigation. Four men were also arrested. Police say the men controlled the operation, even delivering women to different locations.

Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle says police received a tip from neighbors about increased traffic near the property on White Road north of Frierson. After 4 months of monitoring the situation, they made the arrests. All the suspects are from South American countries, and police say all but one are in the United States illegally.

The sheriff's office is currently working with the Department of Homeland Security to determine if human trafficking played a role in the case.
