An undercover operation leads to three women being arrested in a suspected prostitution scheme.

Accused madam Heather Rachelle Garrett, of Lufkin, was in court Monday morning to face charges. Police say they were investigating Houston Co-eds escort service and spoke with Garrett. They say she met two undercover officers and then had two other women meet them.

Police say the women offered to have sex for money and Garrett was going to charge a fee for making the arrangements. That's when all three women were arrested.

Garrett, 21, is charged with aggravated promotion of prostitution. Bond is set at $5,000.

Judith Ann Armstrong and Tristan Kaye Durate are also facing charges.
