Officers Arrest Three People In Tulsa Drug, Prostitution Raid
TULSA, Oklahoma -- Three people were arrested Wednesday morning in a Tulsa narcotics and prostitution sting. Tulsa County Sheriff's Office deputies and undercover narcotics officers made the arrests at about 10:45 a.m. in the 1000 block of East Haskell.
An undercover officer at the scene told The News On 6 that authorities had been watching the residence for some time after receiving information that drug dealing and prostitution were taking place there.
The officer said customers would arrive at the residence to purchase cocaine and engage in sex with a prostitute. Both activities were going on when the officers raided the house, the officer said.
Suspects Shirley Vasquez, 61, Ella Vasquez-Robledo, 39, Carlos Avilez, 49, were booked on complaints of possession and delivery of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
Shirley Vasquez is being held on a $10,000 bond. Vasquez-Robledo and Avilez are currently being held without bond.
