Here’s a strange little tidbit from the Kitsap Sun blog today:
“Bainbridge Island Police Department concluded an investigation that resulted in four (4) arrests and bookings for prostitution on Bainbridge Island. Bainbridge Island Police Detectives received assistance from Detectives and Officers from Bremerton Police Department, Seattle Police Department, Washington State Patrol and NCIS.
Detectives from the listed agencies coordinated their efforts since these suspects are known to commit crimes in each agency’s jurisdiction. Additional arrests and search warrants are likely due to the intelligence that has been gathered.”
Check out the Sun’s post here. There’s sure to be more on this in the near future.
UPDATE: The Sun has a full article posted now, which includes this nugget:
Police believe the suspects are part of larger sex-trade rings that regularly operate in the area.
The four women [arrested] likely represent only a fraction of the island’s illicit sex trade, [Detective Trevor Ziemba] said.
“If we had more time and resources, I think people would be horrifically surprised by the number of arrests we could have made,” Ziemba said.
