Two Las Vegas residents remain jailed after they were arrested for prostitution earlier this week in Franklin.

Officers began keeping a close eye on a Days Inn Hotel room on Carothers Parkway after discovering a sexually explicit ad on Backpage.com.

During their investigation, police observed heavy foot traffic, consistent with a prostitution operation, at the hotel room.

Misty Ebeling, 33, was taken into police custody, while 26-year-old Robert Swonger was taken into custody at a nearby Americas Best Value Inn.

At the second hotel room police found marijuana, $1,700 in cash and airline tickets, among other items.

Ebeling is charged with promoting prostitution and remains jailed on a $15,000 bond.

Swonger is charged with trafficking for a commercial sex act and drug possession. He is jailed on a $50,000 bond.

Both are due in court September 25.
