Officers with the Richmond Police Department arrested Nina Johnson, 40, of Ravenna, Thursday for prostitution after responding to a call regarding a theft.
Police were called to an Eastern Bypass business by a man who claimed Johnson had robbed him of $420, but once officers noted discrepancies in the man's story regarding the theft, he stated he had picked the above up for the purpose of prostitution.
He claimed that nothing had taken place between the two, but "was probably going to happen before all of this."
When talking to Johnson, she advised officers that the man had picked her up and "loaned" her the money to get her a motel room in exchange for her to clean and do other odd jobs for the man, the citation reads.
Johnson then told officers she had large quantities of money in her bra, which officers removed finding a total of $676 on her person.
The man advised the above stole $425 from him, which was seized by officers.
Johnson was also arrested for a separate failure to appear charge from Estill County.
She was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where she remained Friday afternoon, according to online jail records. She is charged with prostitution (solicitation).
