As alleged prostitutes go, this one was a real stunner.
That assessment has nothing to do with the way she looked, and everything to do with what police found when they looked at her nightstand: a stun gun.
Shortly after 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19, Lexington Police carried out a prostitution sting at a hotel on Bedford Street. Previously, investigators had found an online advertisement saying an alleged prostitute was staying—and working—there, a police spokesman said.
An arrangement was set up and, as a result of the sting, Caitlynn Leigh Spaulding, 23, of 368 Essex St., Saugus, was arrested and charged with prostitution, possession of a stun gun and a warrant out of Gloucester for receiving stolen property.
According to the incident report, during the arresting action, police found a stun gun by the nightstand next to the bed in Spaulding’s hotel room.
Information in this report was provided by the Lexington Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
