NOW THIS WAS some trick.
Two men who thought they were robbing a prostitute they'd met online Wednesday got what was coming to them when the prostitute turned out to be an undercover officer working a sting operation, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.
Upper Merion Township police and Montgomery County detectives set up the sting by placing an advertisement for prostitution services online, according to a news release. The ad worked: Police said they nabbed three men who showed up at an undisclosed hotel in King of Prussia and agreed to pay for sex.
However, when the undercover officer posing as a prostitute opened the door for potential "client" Melvin Hunt, things turned south, police said. Hunt was in the room for about a minute with the woman before he opened the door to let in another man, later identified as Maurice Keeley Jr., according to prosecutors.
