FIRST ON FOX: Huge Sting Nets Seven Prostitution-related Arrests Over Two Days in Davidson County

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A sting targeting a popular escort ad section nets seven prostitution-related arrests over two days at three Nashville-area motels.

Two sisters are in jail for trafficking for a commercial sex act after allegedly prostituting at a Music Row motel. This operation conducted by Metro police on Tuesday at the Comfort Inn motel, 1501 Demonbreun Street, resulted from a ad under the escort section, according to the affidavit. After a deal for a $200 sex act was made with an undercover officer, police arrested 21-year-old Christina Johnson and her juvenile sister.

Johnson told police she stopped in Nashville from Indianapolis and on the way to Atlanta. She admitted the room was being used for "in-call dates," the report says.

In the second bust on Tuesday, 32-year-old Kalvin Watson was arrested at the Thrifty Inn on Harding Place. The affidavit states that he placed "backpage" ads and rented rooms for two women, as well as holding their money and offering protection. State citations were issued to the women.

A prostitution sting operation by Metro police on Monday also stemming from a "backpage" ad, resulted in four arrests at the Madison Square Inn in Madison, including two parents bringing condoms to their daughter. CLICK HERE to read story.
