While some neighborhoods deal with violence, East Boston deals with prostitution. Five people were arrested at 228 Saratoga St. this afternoon as part of Operation Dial-A-Date II. This time, an undercover cop paid for a blue poker chip to give to the alleged prostitute, according to BPDNews. The males (the alleged pimp and three alleged johns or accomplices) were all local (from East Boston and Roslindale); the woman gave a Georgia address.
