Prostitution arrest in Gates
Gates, N.Y. A Gates woman has been arrested twice in the last six months for prostitution, according to the Gates Police Department.
In December, Amanda Merrell, 24, was arrested after an undercover officer went to her home in response to an advertisement she ran for escort services, police said.
Merrell was arrested again Thursday for prostitution after Gates police officers learned that she was still offering escort services at her home.
According to police, another undercover officer went to Merrells home where she agreed to have sexual contact with him for a fee, the same circumstances as her arrest in December.
Merrell was arraigned in Gates Court and released to appear at a later date.
