Four women were arrested on prostitution charges in Casper on Thursday.
One of the women charged is 41-year-old Angela Smith of Casper. The other three, 27-year-old Lindsey Gifford, 21-year-old Sierra Hutcheson and 18-year-old Brooke Koppari, are all from Colorado. All four each pleaded not guilty to single charges of prostitution.
According to Casper Police, investigators conducted an undercover prostitution sting operation at an unnamed location within city limits. Male and female officers contacted all four of the alleged prostitues through a website they were advertising on.
Police say at this time they have no indication the four suspects are related. All claim to be unemployed.
The three Colorado women had their bonds set at $500. Smith, the Casper woman, had her bond set at $300.
Each will have a preliminary hearing scheduled within the next 10 days.
