Backpage Ad Leads to 2 Prostitution Arrests: Cops

A Newington teen and a Hartford woman have been arrested, charged with prostitution after escort ads were found on Backpage.com, according to East Central Narcotics Task Force. 

Members of the task force arrested Jazmine Alva, 19, of Newington, and Danielle Sharp, 27, of Hartford, at a residence in Glastonbury at 7 p.m. on June 14.

Police said Alva placed an ad online promoting herself under the escort section as the “Peruvian Princess” and a meeting location in Glastonbury was specified.

Once a deal for sexual acts was arranged, surveillance units took both Alva and Sharp into custody, according to the task force. 

Police said Sharp was also found to have an active warrant for her arrest out of Hartford for violating a restraining order.

Bond for Alva and Sharp was set at $2,500.
