Three people were arrested in a raid on a suspected house of prostitution this week, authorities said.

Hall County Sheriff’s Lt. Scott Ware said agents with the Hall County Gang Task Force and Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad carried out a search warrant Thursday at a mobile home in the 400 block of Highland Terrace.

Agents found condoms, lubricants and playing cards that were suspected as being used in payment to prostitutes, Ware said. Customers or "johns" would pay $30 for 15 minutes of sex and were given playing cards that they would redeem with the prostitute, Ware said.

Guadalupe Piza-Dominguez, 28, of Norcross was charged with prostitution. Two others from Gainesville, Clisero Lopez-Diaz, 55, and Lazaro Sanchez-Padilla, 29, were charged with forgery for allegedly possessing fraudulent Social Security cards. All three were in the country illegally and had immigration holds placed on them, Ware said.
