Craigslist prostitution arrests in White County

White County Sheriff's Deputies warn people not to even think about soliciting prostitution online or trying to sell sex. They're in the middle of a crackdown.
White County Sheriff's Deputies warn people not to even think about soliciting prostitution online or trying to sell sex.  They're in the middle of a crackdown.  Deputies just made two arrests following a suggestive Craigslist ad.

A Craigslist ad, similar to one still posted as of Monday, got 32-year-old Rebecca Dunavan of Searcy arrested.  The current one says she wants a good man but the other said she wanted a "sugar daddy."

An undercover detective told FOX16, "we had received complaints about the postings that were on Craigslist and we checked into it and and that's when we found out there were females that were actually promoting prostitution."

The undercover deputy contacted Dunavan and they set a time to meet.  He says she requested money or prescription pain medicine in exchange for sex.  Instead he arrested her.

White County Deputies made the second arrest when someone texted Dunavan's phone.  The message said the sender would be in town, had $100, and wanted to meet.  Detectives set up a time and arrested David Patrick of Thida, Arkansas.  Both face charges.  Now deputies are looking at other sites to find prostitution and make more arrests.
