COLUMBUS, GA  (WTVM) –  A runaway teenager from California appeared in Columbus court Thursday on prostitution charges in connection with an online sting.

Eighteen-year-old Tkeisha Shields pled not guilty in court to prostitution charges.

Members of the Columbus Police Department's Special Operations Unit say they found Shields' contact information on an online classifieds website.

An undercover officer contacted her, and arrested her at the La Quinta Inn on Macon Road after she agreed to have sex for money.

Shields is out of jail on a $1,000.
