Local News

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A 22-year-old Youngstown woman was arrested by an undercover officer, who police said she tried to meet for sex at an Austintown hotel.

Police said Tashayla Glenn had advertisements online for sex. The officer contacted the number listed and said Glenn agreed to meet him at the Holiday Inn Express on Cerni Place on Tuesday.

Glenn was arrested when she got into the officer’s unmarked car in the parking lot.

She is charged with soliciting prostitution and possession of criminal tools.

Glenn told police that she meets about three people a day, mostly in Austintown, according to a police report.

The arrest is the latest in a string of sex stings by the Austintown Police Department. Wednesday, police arrested a man who they say met an undercover officer for sex after advertising under the transexual escort section of a website. Last month, police picked up another woman, suspected of engaging in prostitution.
