KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – “It takes a lot of nerve. I can’t believe she did that thinking she would get away with it,” says a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified.
Aimee Hart is in trouble with the law again.
This time, according to police reports, it’s after posting an online ad calling herself a personal companion who is “eager to please.”
Dayton Police answered that ad.
They conducted an undercover prostitution sting Monday and arrested the 40-year old at her home on Lamont Drive in Kettering.
She is now charged with solicitation and possessing criminal tools.
Police say another known prostitute was also inside the home at the time of Hart’s arrest.
Detectives working on the case, who asked we conceal their identities because they conduct undercover work, tell 2 NEWS they believe Hart may be a madame. In the case report they say they’re concerned she may be involved with a larger prostitution or human trafficking organization.
Neighbors tell me there is always a lot of traffic in and out of the house.
“The johns would come, they’d stay 20 minutes and the drug dealers would come and they’d stay a short period of time. If someone would stay too long, we’d see people lining up and they would go down, drive by, see somebody there and turn around and wait. That person would leave, here they come,” comments the neighbor.
Hart is no stranger to police.
Less than two weeks ago, she was arrested for promoting prostitution in a different undercover sex sting.
2 NEWS did some digging into Hart’s criminal history and found she served time for drug trafficking.
“It worried me that if somebody mistook my house for her house, wanting drugs or she owed them something, that they would mistake my house. You hear about it all the time, houses getting shot up by accident,” explains the neighbor.
They hope this will clean up the illegal activity in the area.
“I would be happy if this would teach her a lesson, but it’s not going to,” says the neighbor.
Hart appeared in court Tuesday afternoon on the most recent charges.
She pleaded not guilty on both counts.
Her bond was set at $5,000.
