Prostitute Arrested After Calling Police On Pimp
A woman has been charged with prostitution in West Haven, Connecticut after calling police to complain about how she was being treated by a pimp. Police say they did not find the pimp when they arrived at the Super 8 Motel on Kimberly Avenue on Sunday, but they did find 35-year-old Jennifer Lowery with a man they describe as a customer. Police charged Lowery with prostitution and 60-year-old Ricard Burford of New Haven with patronizing a prostitute.
Police say Lowery told them she thought it would take police longer to show up, so she decided to conduct some business while waiting. West Haven police told our sister station, WTNH-TV, that Lowery said “”I thought it would take the police a while to show up, so I figured I would turn a trick.”
Attempts to reach the pair for comment Thursday morning were unsuccessful. There was no answer Thursday at a phone number listed for Burford, and no phone listing for Lowery.
