Another prostitution arrest in Lake Havasu City. The latest in a string of busts, like others in recent weeks, was the product of police monitoring of social media escort service ads.
An undercover detective pretending to be a man willing to pay for sex uses text messages to reach out to people advertising their services on line. The communications evolve to the point where sex acts are described, prices are noted and meetings occur.
That same scenario led Bonnie Girdner, 51, to a meeting point where she was arrested by Lake Havasu police on July 15. The Henderson, Nevada woman was booked into jail for prostitution and possession of marijuana.
