The Lake Havasu City police department has worked social media sites to make a number of prostitution related arrests over the past year or more. Each case has developed in similar fashion, including the arrest of Clara Clark on June 15.
Police reports indicate a detective perused the “Backpage.com women for men” section and began texting a woman later identified as Clark, 42, Lake Havasu City. The reports indicated the texting culminated in an agreement to meet for sexual activity in exchange for “roses”.
Clark was arrested at the proposed meeting location. She was jailed for prostitution and for charges associated with her alleged possession of small amounts of methamphetamine, prescription pills and marijuana.
