Prostitution sting nets two arrests, warrants filed
Longview, Texas (LNJ) — A prostitution sting by the Longview Police Department resulted in two arrests and several arrest warrants filed.
Derrick Terrell Evans, 25, of Dallas and Chrysty Lynn Stitt, 35, of Longview were arrested Friday during an undercover operation that included investigators with Homeland Security and the owners of area motels and hotels.
The arrests stem from illicit information that those soliciting sexual on a website often used to advertise sexual services to potential clients, said police spokeswoman Kristie Brian.
Homeland Security was involved in the bust, Brian said, because those prostituting are often victims of human trafficking.
Operations set up to catch prostitutes and others involved in human trafficking are important because underage girls are often involved, she said.
“That’s what we are really after,” she said. “They are using our city to do their dirty work.”
