The Cascade County Sheriff’s Office announced on Friday evening that 10 people have been arrested in Great Falls on suspicion of prostitution.
The 10 are: Duncan Glenn Pugh; Shane L. Schwindt; Leslie Kenneth Dent; Bruce Wayne Garrett; Timothy Joseph Roberts; Joseph Matthew McDunn; Bryson Elliott Polhill; Brandon Mitchell Kirby; Robert Nick Jung; and Andrew Maxwell Bailey.
They were arrested starting Sept 17 through Friday, and the investigations were a follow-up to the sting operation during the Montana State Fair several weeks ago, according to Cascade County Sheriff Jesse Slaughter.
Each individual is facing a misdemeanor charge of prostitution. No other details have been released.
Slaughter said the investigation and arrests were done with the assistance of the Great Falls Police Department, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and the Cascade County Attorney’s Office.
