Two Arrested in Prostitution Sting

Mary Ann Hughey

Rosetta Miller

Two women were arrested within a minute of each other last month after an investigation by the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office into complaints of prostitution in Ridgeway.

During the undercover sting operation, one suspect was picked up working an area between Highway 21 South and Coleman Road, and the other near the intersection of Palmer and Ruff streets, between 4:18 and 4:19 p.m. Sept. 13. Each time, an undercover officer was able to pick up the women in his car where arrangements were made with the suspects to perform sexual acts in exchange for money. The transactions were monitored electronically, according to the Sheriff’s Office, and the arrests were made after the price and the service were agreed upon.

Mary Hughey, 51, of Macedonia Church Road, was arrested at 4:18 p.m. Rosetta Miller, 50, of Highway 21 South, was arrested 60 seconds later. Both Ridgeway women were charged with prostitution, the Sheriff’s Office said.
