NDPD prostitution sting leads to another arrest

Public safety — Newberg woman charged for offering adult services on social media


A second prostitution arrest in the past four months was made March 14 by the Newberg-Dundee Community Response Team.

Melissa Dawn Rojo, 31, of Newberg was arrested at 4 p.m. March 14 after she arrived at a prearranged meeting place, according to a NDPD release. Rojo had been using a social media site to advertise her adult services, the release said.

Both Rojo’s arrest and a prior arrest in December were generated from tips received by the department, Capt. Jeff Kosmicki said.

“Our department will continue to work these cases as they come up,” he said. “We do not have officers who are dedicated to checking the social media everyday, but they do check them occasionally.”

Rojo was booked and released that day from the Newberg Public Safety Building with a citation to appear at municipal court at a later date.
