The state Attorney General scored a touchdown Thursday morning against a Super Bowl prostitution ring.

Eric Schneiderman’s office rounded up a horde of high-priced hookers and pimps and brought them to the 7th precinct station house on the Lower East Side to be processed for arrest at about 7:30 a.m., law enforcement sources told The Post.

A total of 18 people were busted, sources said, including the ringleaders of the sleazy operation, which allegedly used legitimate businesses including a limo service, clothing wholesaler and beauty supply company to launder money.

The ring lured johns with Internet ads and even cable TV spots in addition to the racy texts sent to regular customers.

“The ring has become much more active in the last two weeks, specifically seeking to capitalize on the excitement around the Super Bowl,” said one source.

“Not only did they cater to New Yorkers, but they also targeted those coming into NYC from out of town by sending text messages to prospective clients,” the source added.

At 8:15 a.m. a dozen handcuffed, casually dressed women were walked from the precinct to an unmarked blue police van for the trip to Manhattan Criminal Court for arraignment.

The women – most of whom appeared to be of Asian descent – said nothing while covering their faces with fur-trimmed hoods and other clothing.

Two cuffed men were also walked from the stationhouse to an unmarked police car that was taking them to court.

The prostitutes offered what they called “party packs” to their johns, meaning that the girl would bring cocaine and other drugs with her to a designated location as a packaged deal, sources said.

One of the locations used for “appointments” was one block from Super Bowl Boulevard, the 13-block stretch of Broadway from 34th Street to 47th Street, sources said.

“Drug trafficking and prostitution are a scourge on communities across our state,” Schneiderman said. “My office will continue to work with our partners in law enforcement on multi-agency investigations like this one to take down networks of criminals who exploit women and poison our communities for profit.”

Those arrested were charged with conspiracy, sale of narcotics, promoting prostitution and money laundering, sources said.
