Pimp, prostitute arrested at Stroudsburg hotel



STROUDSBURG - The Monroe County District Attorney’s Office Detectives arrested Samuel Stewart, 24, of East Stroudsburg and Emerald Rainey, 19, of Mount Pocono for Prostitution and drug related charges.

Detectives received information that a female was advertising on a website frequently used by prostitutes. An undercover officer contacted the female, later identified as Rainey, who said that she charged $200 for a full hour.  

Members of the surveillance team recognized Rainey from her photographs posted on the website, when she entered the lobby.  Once inside the lobby Rainey was arrested.

Outside of the hotel the vehicle Rainey arrived in was occupied by 2 adult males who appeared to be waiting for her. Detectives could smell the odor of marijuana as they approached. Stewart was recognized by detectives and was asked to step out of the vehicle. Once outside Stewart admitted to having a ¼ ounce of marijuana in the vehicle, kept in the driver’s side door in a plastic bag.

Stewart was charged with promoting prostitution, a misdemeanor and possession of marijuana. Rainey was charged with prostitution.  Both will appear in court at a later date.
