After learning that there might be prostitutes selling their services through the site, Arcadia police made some phone calls, arranged for some meet-ups at the Santa Ana Inn and nabbed four people; one woman and a 13-year-old girl on soliciting of prostitution charges, and two on suspicion of pimping and child endangerment charges. Guess which one those two were with?
Now, here's the disturbing bit. I mean, beyond the whole 13-year-old prostitute thing.
"It was just that one of our guys had heard from somebody else that there was this kind of activity on Craigslist," Caputo said. "He went looking on the Internet and found people soliciting sex for money in the city of Arcadia."Congratulations, Sherlock. Yes, people are trawling for hummers on the internet. Imagine that. Did you know they have porn there, too? Yep. Hardcore fetishes with strap-on monkeys in lederhosen and everything.
