WINCHESTER, Va. - The Winchester Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division have charged three women with prostitution after they say the group placed ads sexual in nature on an unidentified internet site. 

The charges stem from an undercover operation, where investigators aimed at arresting those who were arranging meetings online to engage in sexual encounters. 

The three women charged this week are Gabrielle Turner, 30, of Winchester, Va., Natalie Ellison, 27, of Winchester, Va., and Deja Collins, of Dallas, Texas. 

Police say the three were arrested at a location in the City after exchanging money for sexual activities. 

The Winchester Police Department says they hope these recent arrests will send a message that the department is cracking down on this type of activity.
