OAKLAND, Calif. - Oakland police say they arrested a suspected prostitute who left her babies in a car while she worked.

The Oakland Tribune says the 25-year-old Stockton woman was arrested Wednesday afternoon during a sting operation.

Her name wasn't immediately released.

Police say the woman was seen loitering near a dirty Oldsmobile, agreed to paid sex and got into the car of an undercover officer.

Sgt. Roland Holmgren says other officers stopped the vehicle a few blocks away and the woman said her 1-year-old boy and girl were back in her car.

The babies were found sleeping in car seats and were turned over to child welfare officials.

Holmgren says the woman said she needed money to get home to Stockton and asked: "What else am I supposed to do?"'
