Prostitution sting: Police use to make 300-400 arrests since 2012; four arrested Monday

Undercover Tulsa police officers responded to an ad on, resulting in four prostitution-related arrests Monday.

Tulsa police have estimated that since 2012, escort ads on have led to between 300 and 400 prostitution arrests in Tulsa.

A member of the department’s Vice Unit contacted an escort, who allegedly offered one hour of her time for $150, Officer Jeanne MacKenzie said.

The escort, later identified as Mercedes Williams, 24, met with an undercover officer at a room at the downtown Hyatt Regency Tulsa, where she allegedly agreed to perform sex acts in exchange for money, MacKenzie said.

Williams was booked into the Tulsa Jail on a complaint of engaging in lewdness/prostitution. Bond was set at $1,000, jail records indicate.

Another woman who was in the room, Raven Dyer, 24, was arrested on complaints of aiding in prostitution and resisting arrest, MacKenzie said.

A third woman who had the room rented in her name, Ariel Smith, 21, also was arrested on a complaint of aiding in prostitution, as well as one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance after officers found a white, rock-like substance in her possession, MacKenzie said.

A man who was found with Smith in the lobby area, Donte Henry, 36, was arrested on a complaint of aiding in prostitution. Officers said Henry was found in possession of the hotel room key and that clothes with his name on them were in the room, MacKenzie said.

Dyer’s bond was set at $1,500; bond for Smith was $3,500; and Henry was held on $1,000 bond.

According to the National Association of Attorenys General, 23 states have in total filed more than 50 charges against suspects trafficking minors on Backpage.

One child prostitution victim who was advertised on Backpage told the New York Times, in a column outlining her abuse, that “You can’t buy a child at Wal-Mart, can you?”… “No, but you can go to Backpage and buy me on Backpage.”

In April 2012, several senators, led by Sen. Kirk, sent a letter to advertisers of the Village Voice requesting that they use their economic leverage to pressure the media giant. According to Sen. Kirk’s website, several major corporations agreed to do so.

Forty major advertisers received the letter, but according to Kirk’s website only eight of those responded and agreed to ban future advertising with the Village Voice: Toyota, AT&T, Live Nation, Crown Imports, MillerCoors, Children’s Wish Foundation, Mayo Clinic and T-Mobile.

Among major corporations that received the letter but apparently have not responded are Barnes & Noble, the American Automobile Association, Anheuser-Busch, Hyatt Hotels, Foot Locker and Marriott International.
