Austintown PD: Woman tells officer to bring ‘gummy worms’ in sex sting

Samantha Maxwell

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Police arrested who they say is a known prostitute in the area after an undercover officer responded to an online advertisement for escort services.

Police said Samantha Maxwell agreed to meet the officer at an Austintown hotel and said she would “engage in his gummy work fetish.” She told the officer that she would bring condoms and that he didn’t need to bring any other items, besides the gummy worms.

Maxwell was arrested at an Austintown hotel, where she arranged to meet the officer. She was charged with soliciting sex and possession of criminal tools and was taken to the Mahoning County Jail.

Maxwell told police that she has been a prostitute for 10 years to support her heroin addiction in the past but recently to pay her bills, according to a police report.

She is scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial on January 23.
