Police: Call girl ran business from home

SALEM — Police arrested a 46-year-old woman yesterday who they said was running a prostitution business out of her studio apartment.

Lisa Anderson of 134 Bridge St. had a Web site advertising her service as an "escort/companion," but Detective Bill Jennings, who played the part of a customer in a police sting operation, said they made a deal for much more.

"I met her at the apartment, she was in a bra and thong and sexy nylons, everything's black. We talked for a couple of minutes and made an agreement for sex for $200 for an hour," Jennings said.

The Web site describes "Lisa of Boston" as the girl "every man dreams of" and says she provides the "complete girlfriend experience."

"When we're together you are taking a short vacation into ecstasy, and completely away from your familiar routines. Rest assured that our time together will be fulfilling and a wonderful experience for both of us," the Web site states.

The site has photos with her face either cropped out or digitally removed. She also has a calendar listing dates she is available, an e-mail address to contact her and a price list.

The economy is apparently affecting business since the site offers a sale through the end of November called a "recession special." The $300 hourly rate is dropped to $200.

Detectives set their sights on the apartment building at the intersection of Winter Street after receiving an anonymous complaint, Jennings said.

They learned of the Web site and sent their first e-mail on Oct. 7 and eventually agreed to meet yesterday afternoon at 3.

Anderson, who stresses maturity and discretion on her Web site, apparently took many precautions with her clients — so much that a neighbor did not believe the allegations.

"She just moved in," said Jose Valdez, 49, of Salem. "She's not a bad girl. There's no prostitution in this building."
