Bridgeport Police on the Hooker Trail

If you’re a regular reader, you know how much I love a good Craigslist prostitution sting. I am baffled by how stupid you have to be to advertise your prostitution services where everyone can see, and how little the police must have to do to bother with this crap. Most recently, Bridgeport was the target of hooker-hunting cops, which is funny because the streets are lined with “massage parlors” of dubious nature and no one seems to care.

The Police Department’s Narcotics and Vice Unit set up a reverse sting operation Saturday in which undercover officers called the telephone numbers on ads in the Erotic section of Craigslist, police said.

An officer called the telephone number listed with the ad “Busty Blonde For Your Pleasure,” and was put in contact with Ponce who agreed to meet with the undercover officer, police said.

They met in a room arranged with a blanket on the floor, a pillow and a candle. Police said Ponce asked the officer for $260 and after he gave it to her she pulled out several condoms and began getting undressed.

If you, my adventurous reader, click on the link above and read the whole article you may find it as alarming as I do that the cops seem to wait until the ladies of the night start getting naked to actually arrest them.

Odd.
