(ABC 6 News) – Rochester Police used an online add to bust two people for prostitution.
The Rochester Street Crimes Unit found an add soliciting sex on backpage.com and arranged for an undercover officer to meet up with the woman at an unnamed hotel in Rochester.
There, they arrested 21-year-old Jasmine Mayes from Milwaukee for engaging in prostitution and giving a false name. She was booked but has since been released.
During the “meet up” police also noticed a man watching the arrangement. When squad cars arrived, he tried to run off. That man, later identified as 22 year-old Jamel Walls-Jenkins from Milwaukee, was arrested for promotion of prostitution.
