Denver police have arrested two people in a nearly two-year investigation into an organized prostitution operation that investigators say made more than $1 million annually.

Twenty-eight-year-old Hong Tang was arrested Friday for investigation into charges including pimping, pandering of a child and keeping a place of prostitution.

Police accuse Tang of running a sex-trafficking ring that employed at least 50 female prostitutes, including children, since 2005.

Police arrested 44-year-old Todd Allen Powell early Saturday for investigation of pimping, conspiracy and other offenses relating to prostitution in the same case.
