An undercover investigation has led to the arrest of three suspects on prostitution and alcohol charges.
Pamelia Betty Jean Gravely, 41, of Hendersonville, N.C.; and Gina Laform, 48, of Murrells Inlet, have been charged with prostitution.
Each of their bonds has been set at $445 and they remained at J. Reuben Long Detention Center as of this posting.
Also charged was Lavitra Neilene McDonald, 42, of Conway. She was charged with an open container violation after police found an open bottle of vodka in a vehicle driven by the suspects, a police report said.
An undercover officer called one of the businesses advertising and a male answered the phone. Through the man, he arranged to meet a girl at the Sleep Inn just west of Conway.
A woman identifying herself as "Donna" met the officer at a room. She placed a condom on the table and began negotiating prices to perform sex acts, according to the report.
At that moment, detectives entered the room and placed the woman, later identified in the report as Gravely, under arrest.
The report said the second female suspect in a gray Ford Escort that was parked outside. She said the second suspect drives her to various places where sexual encounters occur, the report said.
Another woman, identified as the third suspect, was charged with an alcohol violation. All three women were written citations and taken to jail.
According to jail records, McDonald, the third suspect, has been booked several times previously. Past charges include two counts of unlawful neglect of a child, resisting arrest, manufacturing or distribution of crack cocaine.
Laform was charged with breach of peach in April. Gravely was previously booked in July 2012, but her charges were not listed in the jail log.
