Two women were arrested this past weekend for trying to engage in sexual acts for money.

Twenty-six year old Angel Pitkin and twenty-one year old Mindan Ocon, have each pleaded not guilty to one count of solicitation of prostitution.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say on Friday, they became aware of 2 ladies who were in the area, and had ads on line for escort services.

When confronted by undercover police, Pitkin said she was from Utah, and she had worked as a prostitute in the past in Rock Springs, plus was in Casper to visit a regular client.

She had posted an ad, but then was contacted by an unknown individual who advised her, that she was being watched.

Ocon said she was a dancer from Portland, Oregon, and heard from other girls that the Casper area was good for prostitution work, plus she was looking for a way to pay her way through college.

She added that she had posted an ad, and had not yet made contact with anyone in Casper, when police found her.

Both Pitkin and Ocon are being held on bond awaiting trial.
