Cook County sheriff's police have arrested two women on prostitution charges.

Prosecutors say 50-year-old Kimberly Miniea was running a prostitution ring. Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says it operated in several suburban locations.

Miniea and 28-year-old Vicki Ward are charged with pandering. They were arrested after an undercover officer responded to an ad, and Miniea allegedly tried to hire the officer to work in the prostitution ring.
