A Charleroi woman was charged with prostitution after she allegedly propositioned a constable at a traffic light in the borough.

Leah C. Harris, 50, of 219 McKean Ave., Apt. 2, was charged Monday by Charleroi Regional Police with prostitution and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Harris allegedly approached a vehicle operated by state constable Marcus Carroll at the Sixth Street and McKean Avenue traffic signal at 9:50 p.m., according to the affidavit of probable cause.

The affidavit was filed at the Charleroi office of Magisterial District Judge Larry Hopkins.

Carroll told police Harris offered to perform a sex act on him for $20, according to the affidavit. Harris reportedly told Carroll, “I really need the money,” police said.

Harris allegedly told Carroll to park in front of Rego's Restaurant and Hotel.

Carroll then called police, who met them in front of the restaurant. Police said a metal pipe and a cut straw were found in Harris' purse.

She was sent the charges via summons. Harris faces a preliminary hearing before Hopkins at 10 a.m. Sept. 26.
