GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said an undercover prostitution sting led them to two meth labs at a Greenville County hotel.

Deputies said they were investigating a prostitution ring at the LaQuinta Inn off Woodruff Road near Interstate 85 where they discovered two rolling meth labs.

Greenville County deputies said they received a tip about 11:30 p.m. Thursday about the prostitution ring.

Their investigation led to the arrest of three women and two men. Deputies said all three women were charged with operating without an escort license.

Both men were charged with loitering to engage, drug paraphernalia, and manufacturing meth, and one of the men was charged with possession of meth.

Deputies said they don't know if the hotel was aware of the prostitution ring. Officials with the LaQuinta Inn said they are fully cooperating with the sheriff's office.

Cleanup of the meth labs found inside two trucks in the parking lot took several hours.

The subjects arrested have not yet been identified.
