Two people have been charged in connection with prostitution and drug charges out of Portage County.
The Beacon Journal reports 35-year old Lisa Carneal and 59-year old Richard Roberts were arrested by members of the Portage County Drug Task Force Thursday in Paris Township.
Authorities say Carneal moved from Akron and was charged with soliciting and possession of heroin. Task force members learned she allegedly solicited herself on the internet in the Newton Falls, Ravenna, and Youngstown area and conducted a sting operation.
Roberts is facing charges of promoting prostitution and permitting drug abuse.
