Two Fargo-area women arrested for prostitution

WATERTOWN, S.D. - Two Fargo-area women were arrested Sept. 23 on prostitution charges in a motel here.

Nickole Bucholz, 31, of Casselton, N.D., and Martie Dvorak, 31, of Fargo were arrested following a tip by someone at the motel who suspected they were engaged in prostitution, Sgt. Troy VanDusen of the Watertown Police Department said Sunday.

A patrol officer investigated the tip and determined the two women were engaged in prostitution and arrested them, he said.

A man who was present at the time was questioned and released. "Charges are being reviewed by the state's attorney's office," VanDusen said.

The two women were taken to the Codington County Jail, where they were held in lieu of a $5,000 bond. Presumably the two women have made their initial court appearances by now, VanDusen said. A jailer would not say Sunday whether the women paid their bond or were still in the jail.
