COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus Police say they have busted another woman offering sex for money through the online classifieds web site Craigslist.

Twenty-seven-year-old Candita Ortiz is facing prostitution and solicitation of sodomy charges after police say she agreed to meet an undercover officer Tuesday for sex at the Days Inn on Macon Road.

Members of the Special Operations Unit say they found Ortiz's number in an internet ad on Craigslist, called her Tuesday and when she got to the hotel, offered the officer $200 for an hour of oral sex and straight sex.

Ortiz is from South Bend, Indiana but she would not tell police what she was doing in Columbus.

She is being held in the Muscogee County Jail.

She is scheduled to appear in Columbus Recorder's Court for a preliminary hearing Wednesday afternoon.

Another Indiana woman was arrested in a similar bust in Columbus a little over a week ago.

Officers tell WTVM 38-year-old Teri Rigley, from Indiana, was advertising "something real sexy" on Craigslist along with her phone number.

When they called her, they say Rigley told them she was already at the La Quinta Inn on Macon Road.

An undercover cop says he called her from the parking lot and she gave him her phone number. Once inside, the officer says Rigley threw out prices- $200 for an hour and $130 for half an hour.

They agreed on half and hour and oral sex and exchanged money, according to police.

That's when the officer says he gave the signal to his team that the deal was done and they arrested Rigley, charging her with prostitution and the solicitation of sodomy.

Rigley is out on bond.
