Woman charged with prostitution

MOULTRIE — For the second time this week, officers working on burglary cases stumbled across decidedly different types of criminal activity.

On Wednesday, a Moultrie Police Department officer looking for burglary suspects at about 12:21 p.m. made an arrest on prostitution charges when he caught a man fastening his pants inside a warehouse in the first block of Fifth Street Northeast.

The man, who was not arrested, told the officer he paid Linda Sue Kreigbaum, who was exiting the warehouse when the officer approached, $10 to perform a sexual act.

A supervisor at the warehouse told Kreigbaum to never come on the property again, police reports said. The officer’s search of her turned up $11, $10 of which was seized as evidence.

Kreigbaum, 32, 221 11th Ave. S.W., was charged with prostitution.

Earlier this week, a Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office investigator looking for property stolen during a burglary found a half ounce of cocaine in a ditch on Cool Springs Road.

In other arrests:

• Sheterra Wilson, 20, 553 27th Ave. S.E. Apt. 7, was charged Wednesday with aggravated assault.

Wilson, who reported that a male companion hit her in the face, is accused of throwing a knife at the man as he ran down a flight of stairs.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
