GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Gadsden police say they've arrested a man accused of running an Internet prostitution ring.

Authorities said Tuesday that 24-year-old Daniel Martin Oravet and five other women have been arrested. Sgt. Josh Russell says Oravet is free on $25,000 bond and police expect to make more arrests in the case. It's unclear if Oravet has an attorney.

Police say Oravet would arrange dates, times and locations where the women would meet men and occasionally drove the women to meet their clients.

Police say the women used online classified advertisements to attract their customers.
