PALM BEACH GARDENS — Russian hookers are believed to be receiving clients in several homes in the fancy suburban Palm Beach Gardens golf community in PGA National, Gossip Extra has learned.
So far, one woman was charged with solicitation of prostitution after she was arrested at home at the Golf Villas section of the famous development, but more arrests could be coming soon, according to a law enforcement source.
The fuzz found the suspect through an online ad and noticed a steady stream of men coming in and out of her house. When an undercover detective rang, she allegedly wore a negligee that exposed her breasts and vagina when she opened the door. And she allegedly said she charges a paralegal’s wages: $200 an hour!
The incident, which hints of a serious prostitution problem at PGA National, has embarrassed the law-challenged Palm Beach Gardens Police. Red-faced police officials have been desperate to keep the arrest in one of the city’s prized neighborhoods under wraps.
Police actually refused to abide with the Florida Statute that governs the release of information and failed to surrender their file to Gossip Extra after changing their story twice on whether the investigation is on-going or closed.
Since we never take “no” for an answer, we still got a hold of some papers through less official sources, and they make it clear that the story surrounding 45-year-old Olena Kravchenko should give residents pause.
Kravchenko was picked up in May at her home at 511 Brackenwood Place.

The paperwork says the arrest was part of a “prostitution operation linked to several complaints of strange comings and goings in the Prestwick Chase” section of the sprawling development.
But for some reason, cops zoomed in on Kravchenko in an adjacent section after spotting her ad in www.backpage.com, a hookup website.
The undercover assigned to entering Kravchenko’s house explains in the paperwork he went to her house after a brief exchange of text messages where she allegedly wrote she charges $200 an hour.
Kravchenko was described as wearing “an all blue laced night gown with her breast and vagina exposed.”
She’s due in court later this month.
Kravchenko’s ad is no longer running, and she couldn’t be contacted at the number she advertised.
