Another Craigslist arrest.

Woman nabbed in prostitution sting

New Braunfels police arrested a local woman in an internet prostitution sting Tuesday.

Sara Salas, 24, was picked up through the Web site by the New Braunfels Police Department’s Community Response Unit, NBPD spokesman Lt. Michael Penshorn said.

“We basically check the local advertising sites for things like stolen property or soliciting for things of this nature,” Penshorn said.

An officer arranged a meeting with Salas; and after she indicated she was soliciting for sex, Penshorn said she was arrested.

Salas was taken to Comal County Jail Tuesday where she was released after posting a $2,000 bond Wednesday.

Prostitution is a Class B Misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail.
