Casper Police Arrest Four in Alleged Prostitution Scheme
Four people were arrested Friday night following an investigation by Casper police officers into alleged prostitution arranged via a website.
Taken into custody were 23-year-old Alexis Page, 23-year-old Sandra Page, 26-year-old Cody Sanderson and 26-year-old Hunter Brackett, all Cheyenne residents. They will likely make their initial appearances in Natrona County Circuit Court at 2 p.m. Monday.
According to affidavits of probable cause, a Casper police sergeant was investigating a website, skipthegames.com, shortly after 6 p.m. Friday. The previous week, the sergeant had attended classes at a national policing conference which covered prostitution and human trafficking. As a result of those classes, he knew the website to be used "almost exclusively for prostitution."
The sergeant was initially looking to see if any prostitution was going on in Casper, and found an advertisement for "twin specials" based in Cheyenne and Laramie. He contacted the poster, who said she and her sister could travel to Casper. The agreed-upon price was $1,200.
The sisters had been advertised to be "420 friendly," which the sergeant knew to mean that they either used or possessed marijuana regularly. When he inquired as to whether this was the case, the sisters offered to sell him marijuana and edibles.
After the sisters arrived at the hotel where the sergeant had arranged for them to meet, they were taken into custody and allegedly found to be in possession of marijuana, edibles and Xanax.
The women told police that two men were in the car outside, waiting for them. Officers went out to the parking lot and found Brackett and Sanderson in the car.
Brackett, in an interview, said he knew Alexis Page had come to Casper for prostitution. He said that he had come along to ensure her safety.
Sanderson said that Sandra Page was his fiancee and claimed that he had talked her out of following through on the arrangement.
Sandra Page allegedly admitted to police that the group had traveled to Casper in order to make money via prostitution and delivery of marijuana.
Alexis Page was booked on charges of conspiracy to commit prostitution, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver and prostitution.
Sandra Page was booked on recommended charges of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit prostitution.
Brackett and Sanderson were each booked on a recommended charge of conspiracy to commit prostitution.
