NORTON, MASS. (WLNE)- Three men were arrested on Thursday after Norton Police Detectives, along members of the Norton Bristol County Drug Task Force, conducted a prostitution sting at a local hotel.

Police arrested were 45-year-old Terrance Bradham of Brockton; 44-year-old David Guthrie of Taunton; and 36-year-old Mamadou Diop of Pawtucket.

The operation in effort to combat area-wide human trafficking, was conducted with cooperation from Extended Stay America Hotel management.

Detectives placed advertisements on a website that offers escort services and individuals seeking sex.

According to police, the men sent text to an undercover officer, arranging to meet for sex for a fee.

All three men are charged with solicitation for prostitution, sexual conduct for a fee, and attempt to commit a crime.

Bradham, Guthrie, and Diop will be arraigned in Attleboro District Court Friday.
