Two women are allegedly caught offering sex for cash to an undercover Harlingen police officer.

Police said it all happened on Saturday night during an undercover prostitution sting.

Investigators told Action 4 News that Connie Butler and Brandie Lynn Fortner approached an officer and offered sexual services for a fee.

Officers arrested Butler off South L Street and West Van Buren Avenue while Fortner was arrested off Spur 54.

Both women were charged with prostitution.

Butler and Fornter both appeared before a Harlingen municipal judge on Sunday where they were each issued $1,000 dollar bonds.
