Video: Ariz. 'Porn Company' Raided in Prostitution Sting
PHOENIX — A Phoenix "porn company" was raided last night in a prostitution bust after a six-month investigation by local police and federal agents.
The business, called New Media Studio, had been in operation for the past year at an office-park building at 40th Street and University near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The business advertised its services online.
"It is my understanding that individuals would come here ... select a female, and this business would charge them $140 for a half hour, and they would receive either still photographs or a video," Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos told FOX News.
"What they were advertising was pretty open... which obviously caught the attention of investigators."
Ten people have been arrested on prostitution-related charges, FOX News said, including the studio's owner, William Hartwell.
