Police obtained a number for one of the prostitutes believed to be working in the house known as Cinnamon. An officer set up a meeting during which she told him “everything” was available at a rate of $100 for 30 minutes, police said.
The officer went to the house and Cinnamon let him in before putting a cut 2-by-4 piece of wood behind the door to prevent it from opening, police said. She let the officer leave the house after he said he left half of the money in the car.
