RALEIGH, N.C. -

A Raleigh woman was charged with prostitution during an undercover bust by a Raleigh Police officer.

Catrina Michelle Battle, 30, was arrested July 24 and charged with prostitution and driving while license revoked.

A search warrant says a Raleigh Police officer contacted Battle via text message after finding her information on a website used for prostitution purposes.

An advertisement on the website indicated that Battle offered "a special companionship service" for $60 for males over 30 years old.

Battle agreed to meet the officer, whom she did not know worked for Raleigh Police, at an apartment complex on Deep Hollow Drive. She told the officer that she would have sex with him for $80 for 30 minutes, and offered other sexual services for an additional $50.

Upon entering the apartment, Battle was arrested and transported to Raleigh Police headquarters where she confessed to the crime.

Police confiscated a cellphone and an iPad Mini, which officers believe  Battle used for posting the advertisement offering sexual services.
