WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Police have busted a West Haven woman for prostitution after a lengthy investigation that ended in a Highland Street hotel Saturday night.
Desiree Ramos, 24, caught the attention of police after officials received several tips describing her prostitution activities. Some of the tips were received from fellow residents of the Glade Street apartment complex, according to police.
Police also found information on a web site called “Back Page” which lists several escort and prostitution services. Ramos’ cell phone number matched the phone number that was listed in the advertisement, police say.
Officers used a decoy client and arranged to pick up Ramos for services, according to police. Together they drove to the Ecno Lodge at 370 Highland Street, where Ramos paid for the room and officers arrested her for prostitution.
Ramos was held on $5,000 bond. She will be in court on Jan. 27.
