RALEIGH, N.C. — For the second time in eight months, police say they have busted a prostitution house in north Raleigh.

Police conducted a prostitution sting at 1120 Dublin Drive Friday morning. Two women and two men were arrested in the sting.

The house is next to one near Six Forks Road where police busted another house being used for prostitution last August. Eight people were arrested and charged with prostitution during that sting.

"It is a little unusual for us to see these type of places in well-known residential areas," Capt. D.S. Overman of the Raleigh Police Department said.

Guns and drugs were also found in the house. Police said a tip led them to the operation, which had been going on for a couple of months.

Police said they are looking into the fact that prostitution was going on in adjacent houses.

"There does not appear to be any connection to the persons arrested in the previous incident," Overman said.
