Women Arrested in Fayetteville Undercover Prostitution Sting

FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Six women were arrested at a hotel Thursday night in an undercover prostitution sting. Fayetteville investigators say they contacted women who advertised themselves as escorts online. Arrangements were made for the women to meet the undercover officer at the hotel. Once in the room, police say the women agreed to perform sexual acts for money.

Officers also seized the women's cell phones, since police say the phones were used criminally, as contact numbers on the website.

The women arrested Thursday were Shallon Brown, 26, Candie Drain, 23, Ashley Caudill, 25, Doris Durbin, 27, Tara Knauls, 30 and Leslie Carillo, 19. All face prostitution charges.

Update: 3/16/15

According to the Fayetteville District Court, charges against Tara Knauls have been dismissed. The prosecutor could re-file charges against Knauls within a year.
