Sioux Falls Police Officer Sam Clemens says the Department's Street Crimes Unit arrested two women in a local hotel on prostitution and pimping charges.

"They found an ad on the internet that somebody was advertising herself as a prostitute or escort. Officers ended up getting a hold of this person and ultimately agreed to meet two women at a hotel in the Southwest part of Sioux Falls. When they showed up, the arrests were made. Officers also found some marijuana and meth that were inside the room."

Clemens says 25-year-old Aimee Elliot was charged with pimping and prostitution. 29-year-old Ashley Ironstar faces pimping and drug related charges.

Both women are Sioux Falls residents.

"We do see people that are involved in prostitution from Sioux Falls. Most of the ones we deal with are from out of town and passing through staying here a night or two.
