Officials: Three busted in prostitution sting


Three young women are facing charges following an undercover prostitution sting in Wyomissing.

Authorities say they launched the sting because they received numerous complaints about underage prostitution.

They say Carly Klink, 18, Melissa Madera, 20, and a 17-year-old girl, all agreed to perform sex acts for money.

The District Attorney says he's alarmed by the ages of the women.

"Clearly, if we have young women engaging in prostitution at such a young age, they're on a path of destruction," said Adams.

Court documents indicate that on Thursday, Klink had a phone conversation with an undercover officer, in which she allegedly offered a "2 for 1 special."

When Klink showed up to an undisclosed location in Wyomissing, she was accompanied by a 17-year-old girl, police said.

Both women were immediately arrested.

Madera also offered sexual services, and was swiftly arrested, investigators said.
