A female officer posed as a prostitute advertised online. When potential customers showed up, they were arrested for "hiring an individual to engage in sexual activity", a Class B Misdemeanor in North Dakota. The maximum penalty is 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

The motel manager told the Herald he's certain his motel has not been the scene of prostitution activity, but that he agreed to cooperate with the sting.
