Prostitution arrests…on Bainbridge?

Bainbridge police sent out this bare-bones press release 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.

No mention of where and when. No call-backs yet from the BIPD. I’ll post more later…

UPDATE: See my new post on the arrests here.
