ORLANDO, Fla., May 15 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man on his honeymoon was one of 92 people arrested during a four-day undercover prostitution sting.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said 92 arrests were made May 8-11 by undercover detectives using websites where men and women were known to make prostitution-related arrangements.

Detectives said Mohammed Ahmed, 21, of Illinois was one of those arrested after answering an ad placed online by the undercover investigators. They said Ahmed, who was visiting Orlando with his wife on their honeymoon, was arrested and charged with one count of soliciting prostitution and one count of possession of marijuana.

Ahmed's wife called authorities to report him missing after he failed to return to their hotel room and she was informed of his arrest, the sheriff's office said.
