KITTERY, Maine — A sting at a local motel led to the arrest of two women on Thursday who face charges of engaging in prostitution.

Arrested were Michelle Blackley of Nashua, N.H., and Jamie Michaud of Hudson, N.H., according to a press release distributed by Kittery Police Chief Edward Strong.

Officers from the Portsmouth (N.H.) Police Department assisted their counterparts from Kittery and a sting was conducted at a motel on the Route 1 bypass. Both suspects reportedly were advertising their services online.

In addition to the Class D misdemeanor prostitution charge, Michaud also was charged with possession of a scheduled drug and a usable amount of marijuana. Additional charges are pending, police say.
