Detectives said they found half-naked young women on board

An alleged mobile brothel in the US state of Florida has taken its last ride following a police sting.

Undercover detectives in Miami Beach allegedly paid a $40 entry fee to board the vehicle and found women offering sex acts and lap dances for money.

Six people, including the driver of the stretch limousine bus, were detained.

They face a range of charges, including transportation for the purpose of prostitution and conducting business without a licence.

The sleek black bus had allegedly been cruising the South Beach neighbourhood, popular among tourists and clubbers.

When they boarded on Sunday, detectives said they found a fully-stocked bar and several young women who stripped down to reveal G-strings stuffed with cash.
