NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In an undercover sting, Metro police busted an on-line prostitution ring and discovered two teenage girls caught up in the world of sex trade.
Undercover detectives responded to an illicit advertisement on the website "backpage.com." They posed as customers and arrived at a hotel room at the Comfort Inn on Elm Hill Pike. Inside, they found two 17-year-old girls willing to perform sex acts for cash.
The girls weren't working alone. Police also arrested 37-year-old Tyree Walker in the parking lot and charged him with trafficking for sexual servitude.
Investigators found a computer and cell phone in the room that had photos of the advertisement. They also found a small bag of marijuana.
Walker, of Macon, Georgia, is being held on a $52,000 bond. The teen girls, who are from Macon, Georgia and Norfolk, Virginia, were also taken into custody. Police have not released their names. They are each charged with prostitution in Juvenile Court.
