MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - 25-year-old Tangalletta Andrew is facing three charges of prostitution. Memphis Police arrested Andrew three times in two days.

Andrew was arrested near Lamar and Airways. A man who has worked in the area for more than ten years says Lamar is not like it used to be. "It has cleared out now. It's not bad like it used to be," he said. "It's a pretty good street now. You don't see them all day long walking like they used to."

Andrew was first arrested early Saturday morning. She was released after posting $100 bond.

Less than 24 hours later she was back in the Shelby County Jail on another prostitution charge. Once again, she bonded out.

Then early on the morning of July 22nd she was picked up again.

Chip Washington with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office says prostitution is mainly a city problem. He stated, "I think all told we've had one [prostitution case] in the last two years."

Andrew is out of jail, again, on another $250 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court July 23.
