Prostitution arrest in Monroe County


Curran

EAST STROUDSBURG - As part of an undercover operation on May 14, detectives from the Monroe County Office of the District Attorney arrested Tammy Curran, 49 of Florida for prostitution related charges.

Detectives learned that Curran had been staying at a hotel located in Smithfield Township, Monroe County. She had an advertisement posted on an online website known to be used for promoting prostitution and sex trafficking.

Detectives responded to the advertisement and when Curran replied she indicated exactly what sex acts she was willing to perform and for how much. The arrangement was made to engage in sex for one hour in exchange for $220. Curran was met by an undercover detective and was arrested for prostitution. After her apprehension, CURRAN told detectives that there were drugs in her room and provided consent to search it. Officers located a small amount of marijuana and a smoking device in the room.

Curran is currently being held in the Monroe County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1,000 bail.

This arrest is part of the District Attorney’s Office and Drug Task Force’s ongoing efforts to combat sex trafficking and illicit drug use in and around Monroe County. Detectives work with multiple organizations both locally and nationwide to help provide women involved in prostitution or sex trafficking with shelter placement and rehabilitation.

If you suspect someone is being trafficked, please call the National Human Trafficking Hotline, 888-373-7888 or submit an anonymous tip to the DA Detectives at www.monroecountyda.com.
