One man, 10 women arrested in west Pasco prostitution sting

Eleven people were arrested during an eight-hour undercover prostitution sting Friday by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and the New Port Richey police, authorities said.

Officers made arrests by posing as customers at various intersections in west Pasco. Three of the 10 women arrested were also charged with possessing drugs such as cocaine and methadone.

The women, who are facing a misdemeanor charge of soliciting prostitution, range in age from 26 to 41 and are from Port Richey, New Port Richey or Tarpon Springs.

Raymond Bowen, 34, of New Port Richey, was arrested on a felony charge of soliciting prostitution. He has been convicted of prostitution three times in the past, police said. He also was charged with battery because he unbuckled a detective's belt and fondled him, according to a police report.
