BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (WCCO) — Brooklyn Center Police arrested five people on related prostitution charges at a Motel 6 Thursday night during a sting operation.

Four women and one man were arrested between 6 and 10 p.m. at the Motel 6 located on the 2700 block of Freeway Boulevard, according to Cmdr. Tim Gannon of the Brooklyn Center Police Department.

The man was arrested for promoting prostitution and unrelated charges.

Police set up the sting in the motel rooms after the Motel 6 staff told police that prostitution was a problem there.

Police brought in representatives from Breaking Free, an organization that helps women out of the prostitution lifestyle, Gannon said.

  3. Tom says:

    at least they didn’t hurt nobody,

    If they legalized it, taxed it and regulated it like Nevada does police and courts could focus on real crimes. Add the tax revenue and reduced police, court & jail costs costs from legalizing weed and you will put a huge dent in that state deficit.

      prostitution is NOT legalized in Nevada. Prostitution is a real crime because most of them are under the age of 18. What if it was your daughter or sister being used for sex? You would care then we could say it is not a real crime so move on. I think you need to do some fact finding before you open up and talk.

      1. Tom says:

        and how do you know have you been there I have and there not 18 dummy

      2. Tom says:

        its legal in Sparks Nevada you better check before you speak.

      3. Ryan K says:

        Prostitution is legal in all of Nevada except (Clark County/Las Vegas Area) and (Washoe County/Reno/Sparks/Carson City) but why would anyone want to drive 100+ miles out in the desert for a toothless lizard.

      4. Tom says:

        I agree that “md” doesn’t know what they are talking about. Ryan K is correct as far as Nevada goes. If these are consenting adults who are doing this it is nobodies business. And “md” I don’t know where you are getting your info from by saying most prositutes are under the age of 18. If they are trying too hide it then yes you might have a point. But when you are a man or woman who is prostititing themselves online they are throwing themselves out there. When a person turns 18 its their business what they do to their bodies. It might be someones sister or daughter and they can say what they want too them about it but in the end like I said if they are of legal age not much they can do about it. SO maybe you should have checked your facts before speaking! Maybe instead of taking their chances at hotel they should use their home or apartment?

    It’s a Motel 6…what did you expect?

  8. John says:

    One way or another all men are paying for it. This way they just know in advance what they are getting for their money and how much it is costing them.

    I don’t agree with prostituion. I think it is wrong and I wouldn’t want any of my family being part of it. But there are some women / men that do this for a living. It has been around for centuries and isn’t going to go away. Why not have it legalized in certain places. (not sure where) the people are taxed, medical care and checks – out of their money, etc. I always wondered how much tax money would be collected?

    The harsh reality is that there are untold numbers of underaged girls forced into prostitution. Recently one as young as 11 was discovered. I couldn’t care less what two (or more) consenting adults do, but anybody who hires an underage girl, or who pimps her, deserves to be locked up forever. And it is no a victimless crime even with adults. Many adult women are beated by their pimps is they don’t bring in enough money. Get rid of the pimps and underage girls, and a good argument could be made for legalizing it.

    Selling your soul for money is ok for politicians.Selling your car for a loaf of bread is always an option.But selling your body for money is risky and wrong.There are better ways to deal with these problems than is currently in vogue or even well thought out.Perhaps it’s because we are breathing on 17 or 18% oxygen these days and it’s not enough.There is a suicidal rush to use up that 1 or 2 % cushion we have between life or death.At 15% we will be crawling on all fours to get enough oxygen to survive.So why not look it up for yourselves and explain it to the politicians,the cops ,the pimps and the guy buying your car!
