CROSSVILLE — A Putnam County woman was arrested by Cumberland County sheriff's investigators looking into a report that sex for money was being arranged over the Internet.

Elizabeth Ann Lett, 21, 531 W. 7th St., Cookeville, is charged with promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine, prostitution, possession of a legend drug and driving on a suspended license.

She was arrested Nov. 19 around 3:30 p.m. at the Comfort Suites motel off Peavine Rd., according to Sgt. Jason Elmore's report.

On that date, sheriff's investigators received information from the Internet about a possible female prostitute working in the area and contact was made with the suspect.

One officer waited in a room as the suspect arrived in a red Honda Civic. Once inside the room, the woman told the officer, "I could get all I wanted, referring to sex, for $150."

At that point Investigator Jeff Slayton entered the room and took the suspect into custody.

After receiving consent to search, the officers recovered a container with pills identified as sertraline hydrochloride, and in the trunk found components commonly associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine

Bond was set at $16,500 and Lett is to appear in General Sessions Court on Dec. 17.
