SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Answering an online ad, police arrested two women for prostitution and a man for pimping at a northwest Sioux Falls motel last night.
Officer Sam Clemens says 26-year-old Cael Douglas of Fresno, California, is also charged with promoting prostitution.
Clemens says the two women, from Minnesota and California, were willing participants. He says some women work alone while others work for a pimp and some are forced into it. But he says when investigators interviewed these women, they did not say they were being trafficked or being held against their will.
Clemens says the Sioux Falls street crimes unit regularly scans the internet for prostitution ads.
