NEW CASTLE — A woman who solicited a New Castle police officer is facing prostitution charges.

Police arrested Tarra Lynne Mesko, 32, of New Galilee around 2 a.m. July 27 on Pennsylvania Avenue after an alleged exchange between her and an undercover officer after she had gotten into his car.

The officer reported Mesko had asked him repeated questions about whether he is cop. She allegedly quoted him a price of $30 for certain activities, and directed him to an alley off South Jefferson Street, where she was arrested.

The police filed a charge of prostitution against Mesko Wednesday and she was sent a summons to appear in court.
