Indy woman arrested for prostitution

An Indianapolis woman was arrested after agreeing to be paid for sex, police said.

Trina Hall, 45, was arrested on charges of prostitution and possessing a restricted drug injection device.

Last month, detectives with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office came across advertisements posted online where a woman was offering to be paid for sex, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.

When contacted by an undercover detective, Hall agreed to have sex with him for $200 and arranged a meeting at a location in Greenwood, the report said.

Officers with the Greenwood Police Department and the sheriff’s office monitored the location where the undercover detective was to meet Hall, the report said.

When they met on Thursday afternoon, Hall requested that she be paid the $200 upfront, police said. After she was paid, Hall provided a condom and disrobed, and police arrested her, the report said.

Hall told the officers that she had engaged in prostitution to support her heroin and methamphetamine addictions. Syringes and a meth pipe were found inside her purse, the report said.

Hall, 1134 Gilbert Ave., was arrested and taken to the Johnson County jail. She was held on $4,800 bond.
