IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a 15-year-old girl is among several people involved in a prostitution sting in eastern Iowa.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Department says the two-day, multi-agency sting involved two women making separate appointments with a law enforcement officer through a prostitution website. The women arrived in the eastern Iowa city of Hills on Wednesday with other women who were instructed to perform sex acts with a male subject.
Police say a man is accused of driving three women from Milwaukee to Hills for appointments set up through the website. One of those passengers was 15.
Authorities say five people involved in the sting face various pimping and prostitution charges.
