(Newser) – The world's oldest profession has long since gone online, but Miami police have charged six people with putting it on wheels, the Miami Herald reports. A rolling brothel, a huge limo-bus with a tractor-trailer cab, picked up three undercover cops Sunday morning, offering an all-you-can-drink ride for $40. Once aboard, an extra $125 would earn a trip to the curtained-off “VIP room," with a promise to "get your money worth."

The bus was littered with cash. “It was spread out all over the place,” one detective said. “It was on their G-strings. In 19 years, I’ve never seen this.” Now, the six face charges ranging from prostitution to violating the public dance hall ordinance. The bus brothel was the crown jewel in a city-wide prostitution crackdown that led to 78 arrests last week.
