FORT MYERS, Fla. - Two woman accused of prostitution, arrested during an undercover sting in Fort Myers

One woman, Julie Becker, was arrested after an undercover deputy says he picked her up near the area of Braman and Grand Avenues, then drove around negotiating oral sex in exchange for $40.

Deputies say the second woman, Andrea Smith, was at a Chevron gas station on Cleveland Ave when the undercover detective spotted her. A police report says she got into the passenger seat and asked the detective what he was looking for. The two made a deal for oral sex in exchange for $40.

Deputies say in an effort to cut down on complaints about prostitution, they are conducting undercover operations in areas of Fort Myers where prostitution has been highly reported.
