Hookers Working at Super 8 Motel Busted, Cops Say

The two women had set up shop at the Super 8 motel on McDonough Street and were advertising their services in backpage.com, police said.

Two women working as prostitutes out of a Joliet motel were arrested by an undercover Joliet police officer Tuesday night, police said.

Versie L. Ridley, 19, of Chicago, and Tiana M. Reed-Morrow, 31, of Calumet Park, were taken into custody after the officer arranged to meet them at the Super 8 motel, 1730 McDonough St., and one of them agreed to provide him with straight sex in exhange for $100, Cmdr. Rich Demick said.

Police were alerted to the situation by a suspicious ad placed in backpage.com that sounded like it could be a sex trade operation, Demick said.

It's not known how long the pair were working at the motel or why they chose Joliet as their location, other than "Joliet's a pretty good-size town and it's kind of easy to get lost here," whereas they would be more conspicuous in a smaller town, he said.

Ridley and Reed-Morrow were charged with prostitution and possession of less than 2.5 grams of cannabis. They were released on a signature bond and are due in court on Feb. 28.

Just another case of joliet police department screwing over someone else from out of town just because the requirement to be hired on JPD is to a prick and if you haven't noticed they probablly just left humkin donuts and had nothing else to do.

Im not being mean but i could give 2 shits about what someone does to there own body......jpd has not yet sovles the murders of darryl davis, christopher perry and many many more.... but you got alot of free time to do banquets, and golf outings claiming its to show honor to a fellow officer but in reality doing none of ya'll deserve it! The murders of delasse"chubbs" & andrian"mook" are now getting looked over and somewhat forgotten about since the guy getting charged was found not responsible YET he's still incarcerated though. Fuck what these bitches was doing to they body they from chicago anyways why are they so important to the point there in the joliet news?
