Bellaire Police Bust Alleged Prostitute Who Marketed On Escort Web site

Dick Flanagan, the BELLAIRE, Ohio police chief (WTRF) said he had received information about a woman who works as a prostitute from a second-floor apartment above a former bar.

He said he found her on an escort service website and promoted her services.

A contact time and location were established, and an undercover officer in a simple vehicle met the woman at a gas station in Bellaire.

Flanagan says she got in the vehicle, asked the man what he wanted, he told her he wanted oral sex, she quoted a price of $ 350 and he gave her the money.

The boss said when the officer and the woman drove away from the gas station, officers in two cruisers intercepted them and arrested them.

Flanagan identified the suspect as 40-year-old Crystal Dawn Hotlosz, currently located at 4100 Noble Street.

He said she had several previous arrests from the Youngstown area.

He said she was in Belmont County Jail.
