Prostitution raid nets 2 arrests

Two women were arrested on prostitution charges Friday, according to a news release.

The location was 1450 N. Mack Smith Road, a commercial building off Ringgold Road.

Son An Chin, 50, was charged with prostitution and impersonation of a licensed professional, according to the release by East Ridge Police Cpl. Robert Wade. Sun Duty, 64, was charged with promoting prostitution.

Wade said police found "evidence in support of the listed charges," plus more than $4,100 in cash. The release did not explain what kind of licensed professional was being impersonated.

The women are scheduled to appear in East Ridge Court on Nov. 5.

According to Hamilton County property records, 1450 N. Mack Smith Road is owned by Tri State Securities of America LLC, c/o Emerson Russell.

Bradley crash victim identified

The 13-year-old girl who died in a car crash Friday night in Bradley County has been identified as Ciara Alexis Pagan, according to a news release from the Bradley County Sheriff's Office.

Spokesman Bob Gault said Ciara was a rear-seat passenger in a Ford Mustang that left the road on Bryan Circle and hit a utility pole.

The driver, Shawn David Toll, 38, of Bryan Circle, was taken by ambulance to Erlanger hospital in Chattanooga. Another passenger, a 14-year-old girl, was treated at SkyRidge Medical Center, and a 13-year-old passenger declined treatment, Gault said.

The impact snapped the pole and the Bennett Acres subdivision was without power for several hours.

This is the fifth traffic death this year in Bradley County.
