ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WCIV) -- Nine men were arrested overnight as part of an undercover prostitution sting in Orangeburg County. 

According to the sheriff's office, people made several complaints about prostitution on Edisto Drive and Main Street in Orangeburg, so deputies set up a sting to cut down on the illegal traffic.

Deputies arrested Derrick Devon Brooks, Allen Brown, Jr., Quinn Tyler, Roland Lamont Salley, Justin Trumaine Edmonds, Kenneth Maxie Lucas, Claudio Coria Solis, Eleazar Perez Gomez, and David Earl Shoemaker.

"Sheriff Ravenell wants the residents and business owners in that area to rest assured that your concerns are being heard and we are utilizing a number of methods to address the issues in our county," said Chief Kenny Kinsey.
