AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two women are facing prostitution and drug charges after police said they responded to an undercover officer’s request relating to an advertisement on Backpage.com.

Police said the women were advertising sexual services in the Austintown and Niles areas. An officer contacted the number listed in the advertisement and said Candice Jackson responded. She offered the officer a “two-girl special,” saying she and another woman, Hether Adriano-Parker, would be waiting at the Austintown Inn on 76 Drive.

Police arrested the women in the motel room on Tuesday afternoon. They said Adriano-Parker was found with several syringes, a burnt spoon and cotton swabs with heroin residue; and Jackson had syringes and crack pipes.

The woman told police they were involved in prostitution to support their heroin habits, and they had both used heroin prior to their arrest, according to a police report.

Adriano-Parker was taken to Mahoning County Jail on soliciting sex, promoting prostitution, criminal tools and possession of drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia charges.

Jackson was charged with soliciting sex, criminal tools and possession of drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia charges.
