Nassau County cops busted four suspected prostitutes in a two-day sting operation in Plainview and Jericho.
Police say the women advertised on the Web site Craigslist.com to attract customers, who they then met at motels. According to investigators, only 21-year-old Ebony Gilreath, from Roosevelt, was the only local person taken into custody. Cops say two of the women are from Florida and the fourth, Shanessa White, came up from Atlanta with her boyfriend. Police say White brought along her 4-year-old daughter, who waited in the car while her mother engaged in illegal activities.
All four women are being charged with prostitution. White and her boyfriend, Keith Cowan, are also charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and marijuana possession.
