Two more women charged with prostitution in Mercer County

BLUEFIELD — A regional crackdown on prostitution continued this week with the arrest of two suspects in Bluefield.

The West Virginia Southern Regional Drug and Violent Crime Task Force made two arrests, Lt. C.S. Myers of the Bluefield Police Department announced Friday.

Stephanie Collins, 22, of Bluefield and Suzanne Downy of Bluefield, who is in her late 20s, were arrested and charged with prostitution. They were arraigned before Magistrate Susan Honaker and jailed in lieu of $5,000 bond apiece, Myers said. Photographs of Collins and Downy were not available Friday.

Both arrests made Thursday add to the prostitution-related arrests made earlier this week in Princeton.
