Ft. Smith Man Arrested in Tulsa Prostitution Sting
A Fort Smith man was arrested during a prostitution ring at a Tulsa motel Wednesday morning.
Clarence Holden, 25, was arrested on a pandering complaint, according to a report from KOTV. Tulsa police believe Holden and at least four other men were forcing women have sex with men for money.
Tulsa police began monitoring a web site they suspected was selling escort services at the Tulsa Inn Suites in the 8200 block of East Skelly Drive, according to a report from KOTV.
An undercover officer set up a half-hour session with 24-year-old Destiny Hope Niles in exchange for $150. She was arrested on charges of soliciting prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church.
Police told KOTV they found a woman who said a man had forced her into prostitution by threatening to hurt her, and had taken her ID, car keys, money and credit card.
“We have one female for certain that has said that she was forced and placed into a car and driven here to Tulsa for this specific purpose,” Tulsa Police Captain Wendell
Franklin told the Tulsa television station.
Holden had her ID on him when they took him into custody, according to the report.
Deron Maxey, 25, was also arrested for possession of a controlled drug.
