Two Oelwein Women Arrested in Prostitution Sting

Two Oelwein women have been arrested in a prostitution sting.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 29-year old Mistie Schmidt and Sandra McMurrin advertised their escort services on an internet site called Back Page. An investigation discovered the site was a cover-up for prostitution. Authorities say they would meet potential clients in several surrounding cities, as well as at their homes in Oelwein.

Both Schmidt and McMurrin were taken into custody and are being held on five thousand dollars bond at the Fayette County Jail.

This is an ongoing investigation – more charges and arrests are possible.
