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.

A joint task force with investigators from the Pennsylvania State Police, the FBI, the Delaware County District Attorney's Office and Tinicum Police conducted the operation targeting prostitution in township hotels and motels.
Then, late last week, five women and one man were charged with prostitution and disorderly conduct:
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.
Police say an investigation is ongoing.
