A Norcross woman was arrested during the investigation of suspected prostitution operation Friday at a Gainesville house, authorities said.

Maria Elena Diaz Zeferio, 22, was charged with prostitution after authorities conducted a search of a home at 1506 West Side Drive, Hall County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad commander Scott Ware said.

No suspected "pimps" or "johns" were located during a raid on the house, Ware said.

Authorities found dozens of condoms and plastic tokens they believe were used to pay the prostitutes. Ware said, according to information gathered during the investigation, customers paid a pimp $30 for a token, which could be redeemed for 15 minutes with a prostitute.
