Three women arrested for prostitution

Minot police arrested three women at three different Minot hotels Monday night and charged them with prostitution in what the department is calling an “operation” in connection to “curtail prostitution in the Minot area.”

Raychel Swank, 25, Henderson, Nev., was arrested at Staybridge Suites on South Broadway. Brandy Marty, 32, Minot, was arrested at the Super 8 on North Broadway. Andrea Hodgin, 25, Gresham, Ore., was arrested at The Vegas Motel on North Broadway.

According to police, all three women have at least one prior arrest for prostitution related offenses in other jurisdictions.

As this was a police operation there were no real sex solicitors involved so no arrests were made on “johns.”
