Seven sex workers were arrested during a crackdown on street prostitution in Woodbrook on Saturday night.
The seven women, ages 23 to 32 from various locations across north Trinidad, were arrested by Woodbrook police officers while plying their trade along Murray Street.
They were charged with loitering for the purpose of prostitution and remained detained up to late yesterday. The offence carries a fine of $200 or up to a month in prison.
They are expected to be taken to court this morning.
The exercise was coordinated by Senior Supt Ajith Persad, ASP Anderson Pariman and Insp Anthony Williams.
