Three men were arrested yesterday in a prostitution sting along Thorn Street in Princeton, WV. Detective Sean Severt told WVVA News that Richard Witcher and Daniel Southern of Princeton WV, and Bradley Koepnick of Statesville, NC were arrested on charges of solicitation of prostitution.
In addition, approximately 200 pills of methadone and oxycodone were recovered as well. Drug charges were placed on Southern.
The sting took approximately 2 hours. Severt told WVVA News, “We have hopes of doing these prostitution stings more in the future, and that with us performing them and targeting the male johns we might be able to stop them from negotiating with the prostitutes”.
