Twenty six people were arrested on prostitution charges during an ongoing investigation into increased drug and criminal activity in Clarksville.

The investigation began March 1 and focused on advertisements on the Web site Backpage.com, Clarksville Now reports.

Officers placed an ad in the adult escort section as well as responded to ads, resulting in over two dozen arrests.

The undercover stings were conducted at various times of day and different days of the week.

Officials say it is an ongoing operation that will be conducted periodically and Backpage.com will continue to be monitored by police.
