Four women and one man were arrested in an undercover prostitution sting in Secaucus, police said.

"A majority of our violent crimes are related to the prostitution at some of our hotels," Secaucus Police Chief Dennis Miller said.

"Therefore, to address the root cause -- prostitution -- we conducted an undercover prostitution sting.
