Sioux Falls Police Information Officer Sam Clemens says a local mother faces several charges, including prostitution.

"The Street Crimes Officers were doing some proactive work on the internet. They came across an ad and then answered it. A meeting was set up with the woman in the South West part of Sioux Falls in an apartment. They had agreed to terms for some prostitution to take place. When the woman arrived, she was arrested," explains Clemens.

"What's different this time is she told the officers her six-year-old son was waiting in the car. The officers went out and found the boy. He was actually watching a movie on a smart phone. He was fine. Officers also found some marijuana in the vehicle. She was arrested for the prostitution, drug charges and her son was taken into protective custody."

Clemens says the woman has been identified as 25-year-old Gina Marie Fturlock of Sioux Falls.
