Woman caught soliciting in undercover sting, tells officer to bring 'gummy worms'

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - A woman was caught soliciting in Austintown after telling an undercover officer to 'bring gummy worms' for their rendezvous.

According to Austintown police during an undercover sting Samantha Maxwell was found through advertisements on Backpage.com. Police say Maxwell was a known prostitute in the area.

During the conversation with the undercover officer, Maxwell advertised $80 for a 'quick stay' and $100 for an hour. She also told the officer she would engage in his 'gummy worm fetish' and that since she would bring a Magnum condom the officer only needed to bring the gummy worms, according to a police report.

At 2:18 p.m., the officer met up with Maxwell at the Super 8 Motel on Seventy-Six Drive and was taken into custody by police. She was charged with soliciting sex and possessing criminal tools and was taken to the Mahoning County Jail. 

Maxwell later told police she had been prostituting for approximately 10 years to support her heroin addiction and pay her bills.
