ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- Rochelle Park police snatched up 10 people during an undercover prostitution sweep at a local motel.

Detectives armed with complaints from citizens and online escort ads identified suspects during the sweep, which also produced a pair of drug-related arrests -- one for the sale of 200 anabolic steroid capsules -- Thursday night, Detective Sgt. James DePreta said.

Roughly $3,000 in alleged illicit proceeds were seized, DePreta said Friday.

Among those arrested:

Jeffrey French, 45, of Cedarville, NJ; charged with drug distribution, illegal possession of prescription drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia;

Domenick Magliaro, 34, of Toms River; possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia;

Brittany Werner, 22, of Perth Amboy; engaging in prostitution;

Wanxiu Kang, 42, of Flushing, Queens; engaging in prostitution, possession of property derived from criminal activity;

Valerie Cruz-Berrios, 19, of Suffern; engaging in prostitution;

All were released pending court hearings. Cruz-Berrios was turned over to the Port Authority Police on an open warrant.
