The Naperville Police Special Operations Group arrested the individuals Dec. 2, after monitoring various Internet sites some allegedly used to arrange sexual encounters, according to a press release.

Naperville Police Sgt. Gregg Bell said the investigation involved undercover officers setting up meetings with those who post their services online.

“They would be with our undercover officers and once it was determined what the individual wanted to do, they were arrested,” Bell said.

Several similar operations have been conducted this year, including one that netted 20 individuals in cooperation with the FBI. Bell said prostitution is not something the department considers a problem.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a problem we have identified but its part of vice crimes around the city we have come across,” he said.

Arrested  were Emily Dudasik, 20, of Wheaton, charged with prostitution, a class A misdemeanor; Natasha Accomando, 20, of Lombard, charged with prostitution, a class A misdemeanor; Heather A. Ashfield, 39, of Aurora, charged with prostitution, a class A misdemeanor and possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), a class four felony; Sonya M. Johnson, 33, of Aurora, charged with prostitution, a class A misdemeanor; Deja Davis, 20, of Chicago, charged with prostitution, a class A misdemeanor; Michael A. Green, 22, of Chicago, charged with attempted pandering, a class A misdemeanor and Martell Williams, 22, of Bolingbrook, charged with attempted pandering, a class A misdemeanor.
