PEORIA, Ill. -- Peoria Police have arrested seven more women for prostitution.

Jamie Blackorby, 37, Rachel Ruple, 29, Gwendoline Evans, 50, Taquila Jackson, 41, Enisha McClain, 24, Miranda Robinson, 34, Lerra Linwood, 46, were all arrested Wednesday morning.

Court records show they have all previously been arrested for prostitution.

Last week, police also arrested Lorenda Smith, 18, Tiffany Lynn Schalk, 28, and Kari Lynn Baker, 43, for prostitution.

Police said the arrests are part of a special detail, which was started due to an increase in suspicious night-time activity.

Authorities don't believe the women are connected.
