BETHEL, Conn. -- Bethel Police arrested two women this month on prostitution charges after they posted ads online offering sexual services, according to the News Times.

Police told the News Times that they had received a tip earlier this month that women were advertising prostitution services at various locations in Bethel through the website Backpage.com.

Undercover officers responded to an ad offering services at the Howard Johnson motel on Stony Hill Road on July 7, and arrested a 34-year-old Danbury woman who offered to perform sexual acts, according to the News Times. She was charged with prostitution and released on a $1,000 bond, the News Times reported.

A New Jersey woman was also arrested after undercover officers responded to another ad on Backpage.com, according to the News Times. She had offered to perform a sexual act during a massage at the MI Therapy Spa on Elizabeth Street, the News Times reported. The New Jersey woman was charged with prostitution and released on a $5,000 bond, according to the News Times.
