LEE COUNTY, VA (WJHL) -

Citizen complaints about prostitution in the town of Pennington Gap, VA prompted an undercover sting that resulted in the arrests of three women. 

Twenty-two-year-old Lacie Duncan, 31-year-old Marsha Perry, and 52-year-old Sheila Harless - all of Pennington Gap, were arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with prostitution. 

Harless also faces another charge of possessing a controlled substance, schedule III. 

As of Thursday morning, the Lee County Sheriff's Office told News Channel 11 none of the women made bond. 

Three other agencies took part in this investigation, they include: the Southwest Virginina Drug Task Force, Virginia State Police and the Pennington Gap Police Department.
