MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A woman charged with prostitution promoted her alleged activities at her home as an escort service on the Internet, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Angela Elaine Holt of 2004 Alonzo Drive, Martinsburg was arraigned Friday by Magistrate Sandra L. Miller on five misdemeanor counts of prostitution and one count of utilizing a house of ill fame, according to court and jail records.

Arrested Friday by Martinsburg police, Holt was being held in Eastern Regional Jail Friday night on $30,000 bond, according to court and jail records.

Between Nov. 13, 2010, and July 25, police stopped six men driving away from the residence at 2004 Alonzo Drive, and each man told officers that they had paid for various sexual acts they had there with women named "Nikki," "Lauren," and "Jaylee," according to court documents.

All of the men said they found contact information for the escort service on the Internet at http://www.backpage.com, the documents said.

The men paid between $100 and $200 for various services, but only one of them said he had sex with more than one woman at the residence, the documents said.

Holt's arrest came after the Martinsburg Police Department had received multiple complaints about the Alonzo Drive residence, according to court records.
