WACO, Texas (KWTX) McLennan County deputies have arrested a man in connection with placing women in online prostitution ads for money.

Kevin Currin, 37, of Gatesville, has been charged with promotion of prostitution.

Currin was released from the McLennan County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond, according to jail records.

According to MCSO officials, undercover detectives responding to an online ad for sex, met a woman at a local hotel who allowed them to search her phone.

The search revealed a text where Currin provided the woman the username and password for the website where the ad was posted, officials said.

By using law enforcement databases, detectives said they were able to connect Currin to additional sex ads in Texas and North Carolina.
