The undercover Columbus police officer was looking for an “adult service.”
That led him on Saturday to women who police say used the Web site Craig’s List to prostitute themselves and a 15-year-old runaway.
Tammy Baughman, 26, answered the phone when the undercover officer called, and she told him to go to room No. 222 at the Days Inn, 3452 Macon Road, reports state. He arrived around 2:20 p.m., and Baughman then offered Brittnay N. Davis, 20, police said.
The three agreed on $200 for sex, and that’s when the officer took Baughman, Davis, Cassandra Geotcha, 20, and a suspect later identified as a 15-year-old into custody, reports show.
Never miss a local story.
Police said suspected Ecstasy pills were on top of a night stand between two beds and that $16 worth of suspected marijuana was found inside the night stand’s top drawer.
Officers booked the four suspects into the Muscogee County Jail. Around 9 p.m., jail personnel contacted police about one of the suspects giving a false name. A woman first believed to be 21 was actually a 15-year-old runaway who had been with the suspects since December, police said.
Explicit pictures of the teen appear on an escort Web site, reports say.
Police then charged the three adult suspects with additional counts.
Baughman and Davis, of Atlanta, and Cassandra Geotcha, of Douglasville, Ga., all face charges of child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act and possession of marijuana. Baughman and Davis also face charges of prostitution, and Baughman faces an additional charge of pimping.
The three suspects are scheduled for Columbus Recorder’s Court at 9 a.m. Monday.
