Authorities busted numerous women on charges of prostitution, one of whom was under the age of 18. And police say it all started with classified ads on the Internet.
The women were arrested following an Ogden Police sting operation. Officers went to the web-based ad conglomerate, craigslist, where they made appointments with several women who offered escort and erotic services.
Officers would then check into hotel rooms and wait for the women to show up.
“When they start negotiating prices for sexual favors, that becomes a prostitution issue,” said Lt. Loring Draper.
Police arrested four women for allegedly offering sex to undercover officers. Among them were Amber Mauch, Fawn Beckstead and Avalon Wollenberger.
