DAYTON, Ohio – The day of the prostitution bust in Dayton, Ohio, is approaching.
On the morning of March 19, officers from the city’s police department arrested four people for prostitution and public indecency.
Police also seized an additional five pounds of cocaine.
Dayton Police Chief David A. Brown said the arrests came just a few days after another bust at a home in Dayton’s northeast.
On Feb. 26, police found cocaine in a woman’s apartment.
Police also found a loaded .38-caliber revolver, a .45-caliber pistol, and a .38 Special revolver in a vehicle parked outside a home on the 600 block of South Main Street.
The suspects, all from Dayton, are charged with selling drugs in public and providing a firearm to a person under 18.
Brown said the arrest warrants were for two separate prostitution busts.
The first bust happened in March, when a 25-year-old woman was arrested on charges of prostitution, public indecently-obtained property and drug possession.
She is charged with possession with intent to sell and selling more than 1,000 grams of cocaine, according to a police affidavit.
The second bust was made the following month, when police were called to a home near the intersection of Main Street and South Main in Dayton.
Police say two women were arrested in that home for prostitution, and police also found two handguns, a loaded Glock and a revolver inside a truck parked on the street.
A 21-year old woman from Dayton is charged in that case with selling more then 50 grams of marijuana, a felony, and three counts of drug possession with a firearm, a misdemeanor, according a police report.
