WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Wichita police say the night before they raided a home in connection to a child sex trafficking investigation, officers and federal officials arrested three people for prostitution.

Capt. Brent Allred said Thursday night's assignment was conducted with the assistance of the FBI, Homeland Security and Wichita's Exploited and Missing Child Unit. They arrested three women, ages 18, 26 and 26, at Hawthorn Suites in the 400 block of North Webb Road for promoting sexual relations:

  • Amanda Kiner
  • Brandi McDaniels
  • Heather Norell

Allred said they came to Wichita from the Salina area. A 48-year-old man was also arrested for warrants.

"The thing that I want to make clear here is the location of the arrests of these individuals...has nothing in common with the charges we arrested them for," Allred said Monday morning. "We use these locations and businesses to assist in our investigation... Because you see a hotel involved, that doesn't mean human trafficking is going on at that hotel."

Four people were also booked into jail Friday morning on human trafficking and other counts. More on that story here

    “We have to work with nature, we can't fight it,” Doug Hisken, a Belle Plaine area farmer said about this year’s overly wet weather leading to flooding problems across much of the state. From rising prices at the grocery store, extra-long commutes due to road closures to the tax dollars spent repairing those flood damaged roads, this year's wet start has taken a heavy toll on all Kansans. “Everybody took it on the chin this year,” said Darin Williams, a...
