HENRICO, Va. – A married couple was arrested on prostitution and marijuana charges, at a West End hotel.

The husband and wife advertised sexual services online, according to police.

Officers contacted the number in the advertisement and were directed to the 7000 block of West Broad Street, where a Best Western Hotel is located, near Friday’s restaurant.

Police arrested Leon, age 27,   and Erica Bell, age 26,  on site. The couple hails from Denver, originally.

The investigation led to both being charged with keeping a bawdy place and possession of marijuana.

According to Virginia code, “bawdy place shall mean any place within or without any building or structure which is used or is to be used for lewdness, assignation or prostitution.”
