The Naperville Police Department’s special undercover unit regularly checks social media websites for suspected prostitution activity in the Western suburbs, said  Sgt. Gregg Bell. Thursday’s arrests resulted from online communications and police setting up meetings at a location on Iroquois Avenue, he said. 

Police made six arrests, with four women charged with prostitution and two men charged with pandering, among other charges, according to police reports.

Obarr is free on $1,500 bond. She will return to court Monday, Aug. 20 to set a date for trial.
