OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) -- Ocean City police say prostitutes are using the Internet to advertise their services in the resort.

Police arrested two women they say were offering erotic services online. Police spokesman Barry Neeb says 22-year-old Jaclyn Hallman of Laurel and Theresa Amoroso of Narberth, Pennsylvania, posted advertisements on unidentified Web sites.

The women are the first alleged prostitutes arrested in Ocean City this year. Neeb says a concerned resident called the department to report the ads.

Investigators looked at the ads then set up a meeting at a local hotel, according to Neeb.

Amoroso told police she made three trips to Ocean City during the summer, making at least $5,000. Hallman allegedly told police she made $350 in each of ten appointments at area hotels.
