ST. GEORGE – Javonjae Thomas and Robyn England, both of Las Vegas, were arrested Friday night in St. George for prostitution-related offenses.
“We believe they came to town from Las Vegas for prostitution purposes,” St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said, adding police believe Thomas was in charge of the operation.
“So our officers made contact with Miss England via social media, made arrangements and were able to determine (Thomas) was with her – that he actually brought her to the area for prostitution purposes,” Despain said.
Arrangements were made to meet England at an area hotel where she and Thomas were subsequently arrested.
England and Thomas were booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.
England was charged with a class B misdemeanor for sexual solicitation.
Thomas was charged with a third-degree felony for exploiting prostitution.
According to booking information, the two have since been released from custody after posting bail.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
