Escort family values

The Police Citywide Vice Unit had their hands full earlier today in Northeast Philadelphia, where a self-described "mother and daughter combo" were arrested.

Police said Traci Young, 38, and Tammy Smith, 22, ran a prostitution business inside their home on Ditman Street near Benner. Young and Smith solicited customers and offered to "provide ... the fantasy of  a lifetime" on Craigslist. (The link can still be found here.)

While some folks might argue that the media is making too big a deal out of Young and Smith working in the World's Oldest Profession, neighbors and police said both women neglected Smith's three young children, ages 3, 5 and 7, all of whom were taken into custody today by DHS. There will be more, of course, in tomorrow's Daily News.
