PRINCETON — Three men were arrested during a prostitution sting in Princeton, according to Princeton Police Chief J.W. Howell. The sting occurred on Tuesday evening in the 400 block of Mercer Street.

 Charles Robinson Jr, 60, of Pearisburg, Va., Danny McKnight, 59, of Bluefield and Charles Henderson, 58, of Princeton, were charged with first offense solicited prostitution.

“We used a female undercover police officer to pose as a prostitute,” Howell said. “It takes planning to figure out the best times and location.”
