Two men and three women were charged with prostitution after a sting at an undisclosed Aurora hotel, police said Friday.
The suspects were arrested Thursday afternoon after offering a male undercover officer money in exchange for sexual acts, according to police.
Tina Rene Chavez, 39, of Downers Grove; Liu Qing, 26, of Chicago; Wendy M. Negron, 37, of Addison; Antonio Chavez, 26, of Sandwich; and Pedro Luis Martinez, 24, of Chicago, were charged. All five are scheduled to appear July 23 in DuPage County court in Wheaton.
In order to protect the future operations of the hotel, police did not disclose the location of the sting. The operation targeted several different Internet sites known for advertising sexual services, police said.
