  • A 22-year-old Millsboro woman was arrested Tuesday in Georgetown after she reportedly solicited sexual acts on Craigslist.
    According to the Georgetown Police Department, Courtney L. Powell allegedly posted a "personal encounter" advertisement on Craigslist, which appeared to be a ploy for sexual acts in exchange for money. Police said an undercover officer responded to the ad and, in an email conversation, a dollar amount was set for a sexual act. Police said the two agreed to meet at 5:30 p.m. at a Georgetown motel on U.S. Route 113. Police said Powell responded to the motel, made contact with the officer and was taken into custody with no incident.
    Powell was charged with prostitution and released on a criminal summons.
