    8 CHARGED IN SOLICITATION OF PROSTITUTION

    On Thursday July 26th 2018 Detectives with the Martinsburg Police Department conducted a targeted enforcement of solicitation of prostitution in the City of Martinsburg. The area of Winchester Avenue was selected for the detail due to citizen complaints and identification of that area by officers as highly trafficked by known prostitutes.

    Detectives utilized a female cooperating individual (CI) who was monitored visually, as well as with an audio/gps transmitter. The CI walked in the targeted area and was approached by various male suspects in vehicles. In each case the CI would get into the suspect’s vehicle and have a conversation with them in which an agreement was made to pay the CI an amount of money for an act of sex. MPD officers would then intervene and place the suspects under arrest. Suspects were placed under arrest at various locations in the city.

    The Martinsburg Police are committed to combating the ongoing problem of prostitution in the City of Martinsburg utilizing an investigative approach in which both the prostitutes, and customers are targeted.
