Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

The Washington County Sheriff's Office, along with agents from the FBI and Tigard police, worked together to bust a group who they say was using a web-based escort service to attract customers.

A police spokesman says the sting was conducted Thursday at the Shilo Inn at 9900 Southwest Canyon Road in the West Slope neighborhood, where patrolling deputies noticed a lot of prostitution-related activities.

During the sting, deputies posed as clients and responded to ads found on the Internet.

The suspects were arrested when they went to meet their potential clients at the hotel.

All five women arrested were charged with prostitution, including four Portland women:  Erianna L. Jones, age 18, Cherish Crone, age 30, Aleigha Self, age 20, and Lakeshia Rivers, age 18. Yaminah Oddie-Johnson, age 21, is from Aloha.

Meanwhile, Todd Rutherford, age 22, from Portland, was charged with promoting prostitution, and Terrel Lowery, age 33, also from Portland, was arrested on warrants out of Multnomah County.
