DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

Five women have been arrested by the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office as part of a prostitution bust in Denham Springs. One man was also issued a summons as part of this operation.

On March 15, LPSO partnered with the Louisiana State Police SVU Task Force to conduct a controlled, undercover prostitution operation at a motel in Denham Springs.

"Undercover agents located online profiles which offered cash in exchange for sexual favors. An undercover agent made contact using the information listed on those profiles. A meet was set up. Arrests were made thanks to this team effort," said Sheriff Jason Ard.

The following were arrested and taken into custody on various charges:

  • Sicily Bananno, 19, of Baton Rouge: Charged with prostitution and resisting an officer
  • Katie Mallet, 32, of Kentwood: Charged with possession of schedule I, II, and III controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia
