Tulsa police arrested three people early Wednesday morning in a prostitution sting in east Tulsa.

It happened at the Tulsa Inn & Suites near I-44 & Memorial. Officers tell FOX23's Melissa Hawkes the sting was a long time coming, and they were led to the motel by a website known for advertising prostitution. 

Police arrested Clarence Holden and two other people.  HOlden faces a charge of human trafficking.  According to arrest reports police made arrangements on a website and met with the woman at the motel.  Police way the woman told them the Holden kidnapped her from Ft. Smith, took her ID, credit cards and car and brought her to Tulsa and forced her and three other women into prostitution.

Police say interviews with the other women revealed similar situations and that the women appeared to be scared to talk, and showed signs of being brainwashed.

Destiny Niles faces charges for solicting prostitution within 1000 feet of a church and Deron Maxey faces charges for possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

freaking p.o.s pimp wanna be, if this loser gets out on parole it will be a damn shame!! I understand the women were "scared", but they got legs and they could have ran to the police, FBI or something. they was probly a bunch of meth heads anyways and the pimp keep giving them supply in exchange for being a whore
