Police make arrests for prostitution in Lawton

Six women were arrested Tuesday and Wednesday following an undercover operation by detectives of the Lawton Police Department Special Operations Unit.

Those arrested followed contact made by detectives with the suspects after contacting them through a public Internet site known to be used for solicitation of sex. Detective Kimberly Morton said each of the suspects arrived at a predetermined location and verbally agreed to engage in sexual activity with the undercover agent for money. 

According to the police report, the suspects were arrested on complaints of prostitution and then transported to city jail. One of them was also arrested on an outstanding Stephens County warrant for application to revoke probation on the original offenses of distribution of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute and possession of firearm during commission of a felony.
