Women arrested for Craigslist prostitution January 30, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Internet Safety.

An undercover prostitution investigation conducted by Beaverton police led to the arrest of nine women.

The investigation began when police uncovered details of “erotic services” postings on the Portland-area Craigslist Web site.

Detectives contacted the women at phone numbers listed on their Craigslist advertisements and made arrangements to meet them at a local hotel. The women, ages 18 to 41, were arrested for prostitution when they arrived at the hotel.

Beaverton Police Chief David G. Bishop said, “This is another example of the Beaverton Police Department having a proactive approach to dealing with crime.  We were not only looking at the particular crime they were arrested for, but also for crimes related to prostitution, such as identity theft, illegal drug use and robbery.”
