Five Canberra brothels were shut down after police raids on Monday.
Police, Australian Border Force officers and Worksafe ACT inspectors searched escort agencies and associated private premises, with links to those brothels in Fyshwick.
The multi-agency investigation kicked off after police received information from the public.
A 57-year-old woman was charged with multiple offences and five illegal workers were detained.
Two premises containing five brothels were also forced to close.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
