The arrests occurred Thursday morning at 1694 Kalakaua Ave., 23 S. Vineyard Blvd. and 1507 S. King St. All suspects are in their early 60s.
Officers of the Honolulu Police Department’s Narcotics/Vice Division arrested each suspect on suspicion of illegal ownership of a business and promoting prostitution.
Police said the Honolulu Department of the Prosecuting Attorney was the lead investigator in the cases. Officers of the Narcotics/Vice Division assisted.
