GLASTONBURY — Police arrested a prostitute at the Hilton Gardens Hotel on Wednesday after she agreed to have sex with an undercover police officer for money, police said.
Kristen Lynn Hall, 31, of Manchester, was charged with prostitution, interfering with police and criminal impersonation.
Police seized $235 cash and a 2013 Honda CRV from Hall.
A regional task force set up the sting after hearing that prostitutes were conducting business at the hotel, police said.
The undercover officer arranged to meet Kristen Lynn Hall, 31, who charged $200 for one hour of sex. When they met, the officer described what he expected for the money and Hall agreed to the arrangements, police said.
That’s when task force members moved in and arrested her.
Hall initially identified herself as Kelly Laughlin, 36, of North Carolina. But police eventually learned her real name.
Hall said she had lied to avoid a warrant from North Carolina charging her with prostitution, police said.
