VALDOSTA – Valdosta police arrested two women this week in separate prostitution investigations.

On Wednesday, detectives with the Valdosta Police Department conducted an undercover operation to investigate prostitution that has been occurring within the Valdosta city limits, said VPD Lt. Adam Bembry.

“Undercover detectives made contact with two females who were attempting to solicit themselves for sexual contact,” Bembry said. “Detectives were able to make arrests in two different operations.”

Amanda Laverne Williams, 33, was arrested and charged with prostitution and misdemeanor possession of marijuana, reports stated.

Shortly after Williams’ arrests, detectives “were able to develop enough probable cause” to arrest a second person.

Shalena Harvey-Buick, 20, was arrested and charged with prostitution, reports stated.

“The Valdosta Police Department believes that prostitution leads to narcotics use, the degradation of women and can have long-term negative effects on the community at large,” said Bembry. “The Valdosta Police Department will continue to investigate and enforce the law on prostitution.”

Anyone with information regarding acts of prostitution can contact VPD at (229) 293-3145. Anonymous tips can be provided to (229) 293-3091.

      Unregulated prostitution causes a lot of problems for a community. One of the many reasons it should be legalized and regulated.
