Undercover police charged two women with prostitution Wednesday after responding to internet solicitations, according to a Myrtle Beach police report.

Erin Nichole Baker, 32, and Kimberly Nicole Mangum, 23, were both charged with first-offense prostitution.

Police said Baker arrived about 2:15 p.m. to the area of 48th Avenue North and Kings Highway. Baker spoke with an undercover officer and agreed to $300 for an hour of sexual acts, a police report said. She was arrested and taken to the Myrtle Beach jail.

Mangum arrived at the same location about 3:45 p.m. and spoke with an undercover police officer, authorities said. She agreed to $200 for sexual acts, and was then taken to jail, the report said.

The Sun News has reached out to Myrtle Beach police about information on any ongoing prostitution investigations.
