An undercover sting by Tulsa Police vice officers has sent one woman behind bars on charges of human trafficking and soliciting prostitution for reportedly setting up a "date" with an underage teenage girl.
Wednesday, officers from TPD's vice unit and agents from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics conducted a prostitution sting involving the website Backpage.com.
Officers responded to an ad, and set up a meeting place at a home in the 3200 block of 127th E. Ave.
According to a police report, officers arrived and set up surveillance while an OBN agent went to the home and met with a "young looking" woman who agreed to a sexual act in exchange for $100.
The agent then identified himself and discovered that the girl was only 15 years old, the report stated.
The girl told police that her friend Alyssa "posted her ad and set up the date," according to the report.
Police found 25-year-old Alyssa White responding to a call by another undercover OBN agent from a separate Backpage.com ad. She also reportedly agreed to a sexual act in exchange for $100.
White was arrested on complaints of soliciting prostitution and human trafficking.
