JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
Prostitution businesses are being run online more and more frequently. Wednesday, the Hinds County Sheriff's Office busted a prostitution ring in Jackson after seeing an ad on Craigslist.

Authorities shut the business own and arrested 39-year-old Johnny Lee Crump. He is being charged with procuring prostitution, which means he made the prostitutes available.

"He has verified that all the equipment, property, massage tables, oils, beds, that they all belong to him." said Investigator Dean Scott with the Hinds County Sheriff's Office.

Crump was arrested in September of 2013 in connection to a stolen trailer. He was arrested on a domestic violence warrant during that investigation.

Websites like Craigslist and BackPage are riddled with prostitution and human trafficking.
