Minturn woman arrested for prostitution
Aspen, CO Colorado
EAGLE, Colo. ” A Minturn woman was arrested on prostitution charges, a rarity in Eagle County, after meeting with an undercover investigator at an Eagle hotel and offering to “perform sexual acts” for $400, the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.
Heather Linton, 38, was arrested Monday for suspicion of prostitution, a Class 3 misdemeanor, and possession of marijuana, a petty offense. An informant’s tip led to the undercover investigation and her arrest, said Sara Cross, public information officer for the sheriff’s office.
The last time prostitution was reported to the sheriff’s office was in August 2002, Cross said.
“This is the first arrest [for prostitution] we’ve had in a long time,” Cross said. Linton was working alone, and her arrest isn’t an indication of a larger prostitution ring, Cross said.
Linton was booked into the Eagle County jail on Monday and released Tuesday on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond.
