FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Three women were arrested at a Fort Wayne motel Tuesday as part of an undercover investigation involving an online advertisement for “escorts.”

According to a news release from the Fort Wayne Police Department, an undercover officer had set up a meeting with a woman at the Days Inn on Washington Center Road after calling the phone number listed in the online ad. The officer met the woman in the motel parking lot and then the two of them went to a room on the second floor.

Another officer who was at the hotel then went to the room where he found three naked women standing there along with the undercover officer. The women were allowed to get dressed and they were then taken to police headquarters. Once there, one of the women, Chelsey Frazier, 24, told officers she had set up the online account and posted pictures on it. She admitted that the phone number listed on the page belonged to her. Frazier also admitted that she and another woman, Julie A. Freeman, 24, had made arrangements to have sex with the undercover officer.

Frazier, Freeman and Anna M. Turnbow, 18, were all charged with prostitution.
