6 arrested on prostitution charges in Delco (PHOTOS)
TINICUM, Pa. - June 19, 2012 (WPVI) -- Six people have been arrested following a prostitution bust in Delaware County, police said.
The investigation began earlier this year with a report of shots fired in a hotel near the Philadelphia International Airport. That investigation prompted police to take a closer look at prostitution in the area.

Jennifer Blackwell, 35, of Chesapeake, Va.; Tina Edward, 34, of Woodbury, N.J.; Celeste Fleischmann, 43, of Philadelphia; Jennifer Boswell, 27, of Las Vegas, Nev.; Christine Bohnert, 25, of St. Lucie, Fla.; Demetrius Fung, 22, of Philadelphia.
