Authorities say an investigation revealed that 27-year-old Michelle Harris and 33-year-old Kimberly Jones were in Minot Saturday to prostitute themselves. Police say 39-year-old Jason Aycock solicited the women based on an internet ad.
Officers located the three people in a hotel room in which they also found drug paraphernalia.
Harris, of Milwaukee, and Jones, of Minot, were arrested on one count each of prostitution. Jones was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia other than marijuana. Both were transported to the Ward County Jail.
Aycock is facing an initial charge of solicitation of prostitution.
