Just after 1:30 this morning, the Gillette Police Department was dispatched to a local hotel for a noise complaint on the first floor. Gillette Police Lieutenant Brent Wasson said officers tried to make contact with every individual in the room, but two males fled the scene through a window. Wasson said officers did make contact with two females in the room, ages 25 and 35.
“The investigation revealed that both females had ads posted on backpage.com for escort services. That investigation is ongoing.”---Wasson
In a separate incident, Gillette Police officers made contact with another woman advertising as an escort on backpage.com. Officers made contact with that woman at 4:32 p.m. on the 12th.
“She told officers she had never accepted money for anything while she had been in Gillette over the last three days.”---Wasson
That woman told officers she was planning on leaving town that same day on a bus.
