KITTERY, Maine (AP) _ Police say officers working undercover contacted the women online and arranged meetings at a Kittery hotel.
The three agreed to meet with an undercover police officer and allegedly solicited sex.
All three were charged with engaging in prostitution.
They were identified as 34-year-old Amy Boutin of Biddeford; 30-year-old Nedra Levasseur of South Portland; and 26-year-old Ryanne McCann of Rollingsford, N.H. The two Maine women are also facing drug charges for allegedly being in possession of prescription drugs.
Interim Police Chief Ted Short said the sting was meant to send a message that prostitution will not be tolerated in town.
